The four cases under study. The color code is: F10.7 = 80, Ap = 3 (black), F10.7 = 120, Ap = 3 (red), F10.7 = 200, Ap = 3 (green) and F10.7 = 80, Ap = 300 (blue). Variation of the O2 density (upper left), O (upper right), N2 (middle left) and electron density (middle right). Bottom panels: Neutral temperature (left) and electron temperature (right). Since the values provided by IRI only depend on F10.7 and not on Ap, the blue and the black lines are superposed in the temperature and electron density curves.
