    • ... the detailed characteristics, variability, and global structure of the terdiurnal tide in the wind and temperature fields using data from MF and meteor radars [Glass and Fellous, 1975; Teitelbaum et al., 1989; Thayaparan, 1997; Younger et al., 2002; Beldon et al., 2006], optical observations [Pendleton et al., 2000], satellite observations [Smith, 2000], and theoretical simulations [Teitelbaum et al., 1989; Smith and Ortland, 2001; Akmaev, ...
    • ...[7] Previous modeling studies on the terdiurnal tide have mainly considered the first two mechanisms and were able to account for the observed amplitude variations only during certain times of the year [Teitelbaum et al., 1989; Akmaev, 2001]...
    • ...[26] In a modeling study, Akmaev [2001] reported that over the equator, the maximum mean amplitude of the terdiurnal tide to be ∼ 5ms −1 for the zonal component and ∼ 2ms −1 for the meridional component at 94 km. The...
    • ...Akmaev [2001] also reported that the zonal amplitude of the terdiurnal tide over the equator is larger than that at the conjugate points used in the present study; the opposite result was obtained for the meridional component...
    • ...However, it is important to note that Akmaev [2001] modeled the migrating terdiurnal tide only...
    • ...Akmaev [2001] reported similar results based on model simulations...
    • ...The modeling results reported by Akmaev [2001] indicate that the preferential solar excitation of antisymmetric terdiurnal modes, capable of propagating into the MLT combined with an asymmetric atmospheric response, appears to be primarily responsible for the observed seasonal variability...
    • ...[36] Akmaev [2001] showed that nonlinear interaction between the diurnal and semidiurnal tides makes an in situ contribution to excitation of the terdiurnal tide, especially during equinoxes...

    • ...Subsequently, several observational and modeling investigations have revealed the existence of terdiurnal wind oscillations of limited duration but significant amplitude (typically up to � 20 m/s) in the MLT region [Glass and Fellous, 1975; Teitelbaum et al., 1989; Thayaparan, 1997; Akmaev, 2001; Younger et al., 2002; Namboothiri et al., 2004]...

    • ...[2] The 8-hour wave in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere winds and temperatures has been observed from middle to high latitudes [Smith, 2000; Pendleton et al., 2000; Taylor et al., 2001; Younger et al., 2002; She et al., 2002; Oznovich et al., 1997a, 1997b; Akmaev, 2001]...
