Hydroxyl and oxygen greenline nightglow observations from the Wind Imaging Interferometer (WINDII) are used to examine the local time-latitude variation of atomic oxygen in the mesopause region. Individual hydroxyl and greenline emission profiles from over 5 years of data are converted to oxygen mixing ratio (or concentration) profiles and then binned into local times, latitudes, and seasons. The two derived oxygen profiles from each emission are then combined into a single profile that spans a significan…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
