Abstract
A NUMBER OF NASA SATELLITES HAVE OBTAINED DATA WHICH CAN BE USED FOR DETERMINING AMBIENT ATMOSPHERIC DENSITY STRUCTURE PARAMETERS. AMONG THEM ARE THE ATMOSPHERIC EXPLORER SERIES -C, -D, AND -E) AND THE SOLAR MESOSPHERIC EXPLORER (SME). IT IS PROPOSED TO ANALYZE THESE DATA TO OBTAIN ESTIMATES OF ATMOSPHERIC DENSITY SPATIAL STRUCTURE PARAMETERS, POWER SPECTRAL DENSITIES ETC. THIS WILL PROVIDE INPUTS FOR CORROBORATION OF A PORTION OF THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED DNA STANDARD STRUCTURE MODEL WHICH IS BEING INCORPORATED INTO SUCH CODES AS NORSE.
