Abstract Observations of winds in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT) measured at Yamagawa (31.2°N, 130.6°E) and Wakkanai (45.4°N, 141.7°E) are used to study the structure/variability of solar semidiurnal and diurnal tides. MF radar observations over these sites were recently started by the Communications Research Laboratory, Tokyo, Japan. A database of 3–4 years has been used in the present analysis. The tidal features are discussed, and these are compared with the results from other… CONTINUE READING
