Short summary
Atmospheric drag due to mass density distribution, particularly during storm-time, is of great importance for low Earth orbit precise orbit determination, and for the understanding of magnetosphere–ionosphere–thermosphere phenomena. In this paper, we investigate solar cycle, seasonal, and hemispheric asymmetry dependencies of thermospheric mass density disturbances due to magnetospheric forcing, from 10-year (2003–2013) continuous time series of GRACE estimates.
