Abstract

We describe a method for calculating directly the mean integrated intensity in an inhomogeneous Rayleigh scattering atmosphere using a combined variational and iterative technique. This method is particularly useful for computing dissociation rates in aeronomical problems. Simple semi-analytic expressions are derived.
