    • Abstract


      The gradients of amplitude and phase of diurnal and semidiurnal components of zonal and meridional winds in the height intervals of 80–90 km and 90–100 km are studied using the meteor wind radar data collected at Atlanta (34°N, 84°W) during the period August 1974–March 1978. The results are compared with those at Adelaide (35°S, 139°E). It is found that the gradients vary in an opposite manner between the two height intervals.
