Satellite observations of polar mesospheric clouds by the solar backscattered ultraviolet spectral radiometer: evidence of a solar cycle dependence / Gary E. Thomas, Richard D. McPeters, Eric J. Jensen.

Title: Satellite observations of polar mesospheric clouds by the solar backscattered ultraviolet spectral radiometer: evidence of a solar cycle dependence / Gary E. Thomas, Richard D. McPeters, Eric J. Jensen.
Author(s): Thomas, Gary E.
McPeters, Richard D.
Jensen, Eric J.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(D1) (1991)
Abstract: These clouds (PMC) are believed to be layers of very small water-ice particles which form in supersaturated regions of cold summer mesopause. They exist only at latitudes polewards of 50°, as noctilucent clouds to ground observers and as PMC when observed from space. Eight years of solar backscattered ultroviolet albedo data were examined and evidence found of annual occurrence of PMC in summer polar-cap regions of both hemispheres.
