HAO Research Highlights

Meridional wind variability
February 28, 2018

For the first time, a new module enables Jing Liu and others to investigate the intimate coupling between polar turbulence electron heating and thermosphere disturbances in the context of a first principle, self-consistent model.

Summary of AIR-Spec observations during totality
February 20, 2018

Jenna Samra and Philip Judge identify two new emission features observed during the 21st August 2017 total solar eclipse by a novel spectrometer, AIR-Spec, flown at 14.3 km altitude aboard the NCAR Gulfstream V aircraft.

H.Liu et al. have improved a comprehensive numerical model, the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model with thermosphere and ionosphere extension (WACCM-X).

Temperature differences between the eclipse and baseline simulations
February 7, 2018

Joseph McInerney and others, use a computer model called the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model - eXtended (WACCM-X v. 2.0) to investigate what happens to the atmosphere from the surface of Earth up to space during the “Great American Eclipse” of 21 August 2017.
