|Abstract||The equatorial upper atmospheric dynamic processes show both latitudinal and longitudinal variability. While the variability in latitudes can exist over small distances (~100 s km), the longitudinal behavior has been shown to be existing mainly over large spatial separations (~1000s km). In the present work we have used, variations in thermospheric optical dayglow emissions at OI 557.7, 630.0, and 777.4 nm, as tracers of neutral dynamics. These emissions are obtained simultaneously from a high resolution slit spectrograph, MISE (Multi wavelength Imaging Spectrograph using Echelle grating), from a low-latitude location, Hyderabad (17.50 N, 78.40E; 8.90 N MLAT) in India, to investigate the longitudinal differences in the upper atmospheric processes over short separations. Spectral analyses of gravity waves carried out on the dayglow emission intensity variations for different independent viewing directions on some days show dissimilar periodicities suggesting the existence of longitudinal differences. Gravity wave scale sizes and the propagation characteristics on these days are different from those in which longitudinal differences are not seen. Further, the zenith diurnal emission intensity patterns are different on the days with and without the observed longitudinal variability. This work shows for the first time that longitudinal differences in upper atmospheric processes can exist at even as small as 30 longitude separations. Such longitudinal differences seen in the neutral dayglow emission intensities are attributed to the zonal variation in the daytime equatorial electrodynamics.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
