Deepwave 2014

For two months in 2014, the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V Research Aircraft was flying through the stratosphere above and around the New Alps. The project used a comprehensive suite of airborne and ground-based instruments providing measurements from Earth’s surface to ~100 km, ambitiously observing upward-propagating gravity waves from their origin to their demise.

This research was performed during my postdoc at Yale University. Published papers include:
