CG_WaveS: Convective Gravity Waves in the Stratosphere


CG WaveS will seek to measure and quantify gravity waves excited by deep convection ranging from single cells to frontal systems and squall lines and their propagation and dissipation throughout the stratosphere. This will be accomplished by HIAPER lidar measurements using Rayleigh and Na resonance lidars aboard the NSF/NCAR HIAPER GV aircraft for flights over the central United States.
