Atmospheric gravity waves were a secondary focus and multiple radiosonde flights were added to the schedule to collect necessary datasets in an attempt to answer the question of whether eclipse-induced stratospheric gravity waves can be detected with radiosonde data.

I had proof positive that these 200 MHz energy bursts were not from 200 MHz gravity waves.
Subsequently, the flow rises suddenly, generating the characteristic gravity waves. Gravity waves form regions of short-lived but considerable amounts of LWC [23].

The study of evolution of weakly nonlinear surface gravity waves in crossing sea states has attracted considerable interest in recent years.
Wave Dynamics in HorizontallyInhomogeneous MediumsIn Figure 3 we represent vertical component of internal gravity wave field velocity w generated by a non-local source (underwater obstacle - sea platform) in arbitrary stratified ocean of non-uniform depth.

There now essentially is a mathematical model that translates the theory into numbers that describe the gravity waves. These numbers can drive an algorithm that produces a forecast of the kinetic energy associated with turbulence.
The terms responsible for the gravity wave speed are the pressure gradient term in the momentum equation, g[nabla][zeta], and the divergence term in the continuity equation [nabla].
If W-waves are related to gravity (or are long wavelength "gravity waves" as described earlier) one would expect them to be hard to detect and manipulate as found.
