DIURNAL AND SEMI-DIURNAL TEMPERATURE VARIABILITY OF THE MIDDLE ATMOSPHERE, AS OBSERVED BY ISAMS

Abstract:

Some preliminary results are presented showing that the ISAMS instrument on board the UARS satellite has detected sun-synchronous variations in atmospheric temperature between 15-80 km altitude. These are interpreted as the westward-migrating diurnal and semi-diurnal tides. Zonal mean maps of the amplitudes of these components are shown determined from 40 days' observations during the northern hemisphere winter of 1991-92. The results show maximum amplitudes ~5K, with the diurnal tide stronge...
