Long-term measurements of mesospheric and lower thermospheric winds using specular meteor radars

Universität Rostock, 2019

Abstract: Long-term measurements of winds in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere are of fundamental importance to detect global circulation patterns and their effects on the entire atmosphere. Measurements of winds and atmospheric waves seem to depend on the used instrument and the applied method to infer a decompose of the observed time series. Furthermore, differences in the measurements occur due to the observed location, the season, and the altitude range. Aim of this thesis is a study of horizontal winds and their oscillations at the middle and polar latitudes, in view of their long-term change.
