Harris, I., and W. Priester, 1963: Relation between theoretical and observational models of the upper atmosphere. J. Geophys. Res., 68, no. 20, 5891-5894.

In a recent paper [Harris and Priester, 1962] we published theoretical working models for the solar-cycle variations of the upper atmosphere that were based on a working hypothesis concerned with the dependence of the heat sources on the solar activity. In that paper we assumed that the fluxes of both heat sources (extreme ultraviolet flux and 'corpuscular' heat flux) vary in proportion to the monthly averages of the solar 10.7-cm flux, which is generally used as an indicator of solar activity. Consequently the model parameters S of the theoretical models were taken to be equal to the monthly averages of the 10.7-cm flux.

In addition to the comparison made earlier with data for high solar activity, it is now possible to compare those models with observational data obtained during times of medium and low solar activity. This leads to an improvement of the wokring hypothesis.
