About this book

The papers presented here confirm previous evidence that the Southern Hemisphere is not a mirror image of the Northern Hemisphere and illustrate the new directions of research being pursued. The research in this volume encompasses studies from the equatorial regions to the very high-latitudes of Antarctica of both the neutral and ionized upper atmosphere using both space-borne and ground-based observational platforms. The complementary nature of the global coverage of space-borne measurement and long-term fixed location ground-based measurements is clearly demonstrated.


Thermospheric dynamics in the southern polar region, D. Rees et al; optical interferometric observations of 630-nm intensities, thermospheric winds and temperatures near the geomagnetic equator, J.W.
