Abstract: [1] 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…
