[1] Thermosphere, Ionosphere, Mesosphere, Energetics, and Dynamics (TIMED)/ Sounding of the Atmosphere Using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER) temperature observations are used to study the global structure and variability of the mesopause altitude and temperature. There are two distinctly different mesopause altitude levels: the higher level at 95–100 km and the lower level below 86 km. The mesopause of the middle- and high-latitude regions is at the lower altitude in the summer hemisphere…
