Abstract

To determine gravity wave properties like wavelengths, periods and propagation directions at mesospheric altitudes (86 km) we combine lidar and airglow temperature and meteor radar wind data. By means of wavelet transformation we investigate the wave field and determine intrinsic wave properties as functions of time and period. We are able to identify several gravity wave packets by their distinct propagation and discover a superposition with possible wave-wave and wave-mean-flow interaction.
