Abstract
MLT (Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere) airglow emission rates and temperatures have been monitored with a Spectral Airglow Temperature Imager (SATI), operated at Resolute Bay (74.68degreesN, 94.90degreesW). The 2001/2002 winter season data exhibits a major cooling event for both the O-2 and OH emissions near the end of December, a mild event in mid February and a final cooling in early March. These temperature perturbations are compared with the UKMO stratospheric assimilated data for the Resolute Bay location and for zonally averaged data at 75degreesN, at two pressure levels, 3.16 hPa and 0.316 hPa. For the major event the 3.16 hPa zonally averaged temperature coincides in time with the MLT cooling. The O-2 temperatures increase slightly, prior to the stratospheric warming, but after onset both emissions exhibit cooling; this is consistent with the TIME-GCM/CCM3 predictions for the meridional circulation at high latitudes.
