DEPARTMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC, OCEANIC AND SPACE SCIENCE, Space Physics Research Laboratory, Hayward St., Ann Arbor, Michigan Contract/Grant No.: NAGW Project Name: Data analysis and theoretical studies of the upper mesosphere and lower thermosphere Report Author(s): Alan Bums The tidal changes are attributed to a combination of changes in the zonal mean zonal winds, changes in ozone forcing of the SW2, and nonlinear planetary wave-tide interactions. We further investigate the influence of the lunar tide enhancements on generating perturbations in the low latitude ionosphere during SSWs by using the WACCM-X

The CO 2 + / O 2 + ratio is less than 10%. Above km O + is the major ion. The maximum electron density is ∼3×10 5 cm −3 at ∼ km altitude.

The solar wind directly interacts with the upper atmosphere, because Venus does not have a Michael C.

We now model the plasma as a conducting material, but allowing for collisions between electrons and ions with neutrals, ://   A theory, based on solar tides, is advanced to explain the anomalous seasonal, diurnal and geographical variations of F 2 region ionization.

It is shown that the horizontal winds due to these tides must cause electrons to move along the lines of the earth’s magnetic field. The resultant motion has The tidal amplitudes of N e and V z exhibit hemispheric asymmetries, i.e., larger in the south than in the north.
