|320 - SDT - Forbes/Vial Model Semidiurnal Tides|
Instrument Type: Instrument
Observation Site: None
Instrument Page: SDTDescription:
These are the results of model runs at 170 altitudes between 0 and 110 km at every 2 degrees of latitude between -88 and +88. We give the semidiurnal amplitude and phase of the eastward neutral wind, the northward neutral wind, the neutral temperature, and the geopotential. The results are independent of solar cycle, so the year is arbitrary. The year 1988 was chosen because this was the year that the model runs were made. The calculations were done for each month of the year (on the 15th day of the month). Some temperature amplitudes are shown as 0 near the pole but with some phase. This is the result of truncation with amplitudes less than 0.005 K.
