Simultaneous observations of the middle atmosphere and lower thermosphere by Na Wind/Temperature (W/T) and Rayleigh/Raman lidar and other ground‐based measurements were conducted the night of October 21, during the ALOHA‐93 campaign. Rayleigh/Raman lidar measurements provide density from 25 to 90 km and temperature from 25 to 85 km. From the same location, Na W/T lidar measurements were also obtained between ∼83 and 103 km. The combined data provides continuous temperature from 25 to 103 km. Strong perturbations which may be associated with the diurnal tide are observed in the temperature and wind profiles.
