Abstract

New observations at South Georgia, having an extremely intense source of gravity waves (GWs), are used to evaluate model simulations of gravity waves and wakes. Researchers report results from the South Georgia Wave Experiment (SG-WEX), a major coordinated observational and modeling experiment to determine the nature and impacts of gravity waves generated by South Georgia. Goals of SG-WEX include a more comprehensive observational understanding of GWs and the associated development of gravity wave pa­rameterizations to allow the effects from islands such as South Georgia to be better represented in the UM.
