Impact of Aerospace Technology on Studies of the Earth's Atmosphere is a 13-chapter book that describes the studies that use space-based instruments to explore many qualities of the atmosphere. This text presents the studies about the Earth's magnetosphere, ionosphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, climate, and pollution. The International Magnetospheric Study is also covered. The use of fluorescent ion jets, lasers, space vehicles, and equipments on board Concorde 001 in this field of interest is explained as well. This book will be very useful as a base from which all nations can think out their own programs of equipment, measurement, and use in the study of Earth's atmosphere.
