This paper focuses on the relationship between the 500 hPa height fluctuations and the associative atmosphere thickness (AT) over Iran and the Middle East between 1961 and 2013. For this purpose, atmospheric Geopotential Height (HGT) data of the 1000 and the 500 hPa levels were obtained from the NCEP/NCAR database covering the domain of longitudes 25°E to 75°E and latitudes 15°N to 45°N. The correlation coefficient was used to investigate the relationship. The results showed that the daily fluctuations at the 500 hPa height and the AT over the Middle East were low.
