Short summary
The knowledge of decadal temperature trends in the stratosphere, mesosphere, and lower thermosphere (20 to 100 km) is important for both scientific and practical reasons and for the relation to climate change. Almost all long-term measurements are made at fixed or limited local time intervals. The differences among the various measurements can be significant. Our results show that at least some of these differences may be due to the different local times at which the temperatures are measured.
