The gradients of amplitude and phase of diurnal and semidiurnal components of zonal and meridional winds in the height intervals of 80-90 km and 90-100 km are studied using the meteor wind radar data collected at Atlanta (34°N, 84°W) during the period August 1974-March 1978. The results are compared with those at Adelaide (35°S, 139°E). It is found that the gradients vary in an opposite manner between the two height intervals.
