Solar cycle variation of nitric oxide in the thermosphere

Abstract

The measurements of trace gases in the atmosphere made by the Halogen Occultation Experiment instrument on UARS have been used to investigate the solar cycle variation of nitric oxide. The data covers the period from near solar activity maximum in late 1991 to its near minimum in late 1996. Systematic errors in the NO measurements were corrected, and the… (More)
