             abstract = "A comparative study of the quasi-16-day wave (QSDW) in the middle 
                         atmosphere using meteor radar observations and reanalysis data 
                         from three Brazilian stations, Sao Joao do Cariri (7.4S S, 36.5S 
                         W) (CA), Cachoeira Paulista (22.7S S, 45S W) (CP), and Santa 
                         Maria (29.7S S, 53.7S W) (SM) has been carried out in the year 
                         2005 to delineate its latitudinal variability characteristics. The 
                         broad spectral behavior around 16-day periodicity may indicate 
                         multiple modes of the concerned wave component. The wave amplitude 
                         shows a number of peaks over the year with the largest one in 
                         summer and winter in the case of mesosphere-lower thermosphere 
                         (MLT) and stratosphere, respectively. A potential coupling of the 
                         concerned wave with other short period planetary waves, especially 
                         at CA and CP is evinced. Although zonal propagation exhibits both 
                         eastward as well as westward waves there is a general preference 
                         of eastward waves at mid-latitude and westward waves at tropical 
                         latitudes. The prevailing westerly background wind in the middle 
                         atmosphere is conceived to favor the wave filtering of westward 
                         propagating Rossby waves at lower latitude.",
