Short summary
Information on the mesospheric OH layer height is crucial for identifying sources of its variability and causes of discrepancies in measurements and models. Using space-based data, we inferred an empirical function for predicting the altitude of the layer at midlatitudes from ground-based measurements of OH intensity and temperature. By applying it to data at the Sierra Nevada Observatory, we found significant short-term variability in the layer altitude, mainly due to wave variability.
