Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres


The equatorial mesosphere is an especially active region dynamically and chemically, owing to the strong dominance by the diurnal tide, as well as by planetary waves and atmospheric gravity waves (AGWs). The very strong tides are now known to set up vertical gradients of horizontal winds that lead to shear instabilities
