Orbital environment dynamicsDiurnal density variations of the upper atmosphere are described. Temperature distribution above the thermopause were mapped and extremes of temperature variation over the 11-year solar cycle were determined. Day and nigth density profiles in the upper atmosphere at sunspot minimum and at a time of exceptionally high solar activity are presented.
