Abstract: [1] A three-field photometer (3FP) for making observations of airglow in the Mesosphere Lower Thermosphere (MLT) region has been operated at the center of the large MF aerial array located near Adelaide (138°E, 35°S) since 1993. Observations of the 557.7 nm airglow intensity emitted by atomic oxygen (OI) at heights near 97 km and the 730.0 nm airglow intensity emitted by hydroxyl (OH) near 87 km have been made simultaneously with MF spaced antenna observations of wind velocities in the 80-100 km height region…
