Short summary
In the past years, the study of the temperature trend and its variability in the upper atmosphere has increased. However, most works were conducted in regions of medium and high latitude. Therefore, we aim to analyze a low-latitude region, the south of Brazil and surrounding areas. Using data from the TIMED/SABER instrument and applying the Trend-Run model for temperature trend analyses, no substantial temperature trend was found in the MLT region (80–100 km) from the years 2003 to 2014.
