Short summary
One of the fundamental tasks of atmospheric physics is the study of the processes of vertical interaction of atmospheric layers. We carried out observations with a Fabry–Perot interferometer at an altitude of 90–100 km. We have shown that sudden stratospheric warming and active planetary waves have an impact on the dynamics of the upper atmosphere. That is, the green line airglow decreases and the temperature rises. Major warming causes the reversal of the zonal wind in the upper atmosphere.
