We present our results for reducing of mass-spectrometric measurements of concentrations of neutral atmosphere gases onboard the Dynamics Explorer 2 satellite. We investigated the global distribution of upper thermosphere wave activity, the dependence of wave parameters on geomagnetic activity, and the background level of atmosphere gravity waves at ionospheric heights.
