Abstract

We investigate effects of the stratospheric sudden warming on the temperature in the MLT (mesosphere and lower thermosphere) region by using a general circulation model up to 150km height. Cooling of 5-15K at high latitudes of the upper mesosphere and lower thermosphere occurs during the stratospheric sudden warming event. The result indicates influences of the stratospheric sudden warming on the temperature in the MLT region. We investigate mechanisms of the temperature variation at high latitudes of the upper mesosphere and lower thermosphere associated with the stratospheric sudden warming event.
