Short summary
The 6.5-day traveling planetary wave is able to impact the ionosphere/thermosphere via a dissipation mechanism. Ionospheric TEC and thermosphere O/N2 exhibit an apparent decrease as the result of extra meridional circulation induced by 6.5-day wave dissipation. Our work suggests that the modulation of E-dynamo is not the unique pathway through which planetary waves substantially influence the IT system.
