Abstract

Middle atmospheric lidar temperature measurements were performed at the Southern Andes gravity wave hot spot with unprecedented cadence. Exceptional wave events were observed in winter, resulting in temperature deviations from the monthly mean of 25K to 55K. GW potential energies show conservative growth rates in the stratosphere and a saturation limit in the mesosphere during winter.
