A Review of Advances in Imaging Techniques for Measuring Short Period Gravity Waves in the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere
Advances in Space Research
This paper reviews developments in imaging techniques over the past 25 years and the evolution of imaging science for gravity wave studies using the mesospheric and lower thermospheric nightglow emissions (altitude range ∼80–100 km). Several “milestone” papers are identified to help illustrate the advancements in imaging capability from early long-time exposure infrared photography to solid state digital imaging systems in use today. An extensive “imaging bibliography” is given to aid students and new researchers to this expanding field of research.
