Abstract

The Thermosphere-Ionosphere General Circulation Model (Roble et al., 1988) and the Coupled Thermosphere-Ionosphere Model (Fuller-Rowell et al., 1987) are used to simulate thermospheric-ionospheric behaviour during the magnetic storm of December 8, 1982. A comparison of these predictions with observations indicates that both models overestimate the daytime increase of the O/N 2 ratio and the associated positive ionospheric storm effects. Also there is no indication of a large enhancement in the O/N 2 ratio in the evening sector of the winter hemisphere.
