                         at 777.4 nm and 630.0 nm have been used in the past few years to 
                         determine the ionospheric F-layer peak electron density and peak 
                         height, and to investigate the pattern of F-layer depleted plasma

                         associated irregularities In the tropical ionosphere. Meridional 
                         scanning observations of these emissions at low latitudes are 
                         presented, in the form of computer generated three-dimensional 
                         perspective views, showing the spatial north-south and temporal 
                         intensity variations of the 0I emissions, for both normal 
                         conditions and in the presence of magnetic field-aligned large 
                         scale plasma irregularities or bubbles. Significant features of 
                         these observations are discussed. This remote sensing airglow

                         processes and to investigate the pattern of large scale plasma
