Abstract

The Thermospheric Ionospheric Electrodynamic General Circulation Model from the National Center for Atmospheric Research was used to evaluate tidal effects on the Ionosphere-Thermosphere system by turning the tides on and off. This contributed to our understanding of the role that atmospheric tides play in the dynamic system of the Earth's atmosphere, especially in the upper atmospheric frontier. The results obtained for the mean state parameters showed varied correlation with atmospheric tides. This demonstrated that while atmospheric tides play a major role in atmospheric dynamics, they are not the sole participant.
