Abstract

OH(6–2) Q<sub>1</sub>/P<sub>1</sub> and R<sub>1</sub>/P<sub>1</sub> airglow emission intensity ratios, for rotational states up to <i>j</i>' = 4.5, are measured to be lower than implied by transition probabilities published by various authors including Mies, Langhoff <i>et al.</i> and Turnbull and Lowe. Experimentally determined relative values of <i>j</i>' transitions yield OH(6–2) rotational temperatures 2 K lower than Langhoff <i>et al.</i>, 7 K lower than Mies and 13 K lower than Turnbull and Lowe.<br><br><b>Key words:</b> Atmospheric composition and structure (airglow and aurora; pressure, density and temperature)</p
