The simulation results of the effects of the thermosphere and the Earth's upper atmosphere heat regime disturbances during the extreme magnetic storm on 7–10 November 2004 are presented. The measurement results of the ionosphere parameters with the incoherent scatter technique and thermospheric model NRLMSISE-00 are used. The effects of the magnetospheric electric field penetration to the midlatitudes are estimated. The ionosphere-thermosphere disturbance effects are explained by the processes of high latitude heating due to the solar wind energy input, as well as particle precipitation, shift of the high latitude structures (auroral oval, midlatitude trough, hot zone etc.) to the latitudes that are closed to the Kharkiv radar latitude.
