It has been shown that longitudinal and temporal changes of total ozone occur in response to circulation patterns and their time changes. Calculations of the non-equilibrium state of ozone show that day-time concentrations must be less than in the case of steady photochemical equilibrium. The importance of the 12- and 24-hourly tides in the interpretation of wind observations at 80-100 km has been demonstrated on the basis of radio meteor observations. Approximation formulae have been developed for the study of internal gravity waves in a non-isothermal atmosphere. The wave structure of noctilucent clouds has been interpreted.
