Observe gravity waves with large vertical wavelengths.

Description

Systematically observe gravity waves with large vertical wavelengths at lower F‐region heights, and correlate on a global scale remotely‐sensed wave‐induced airglow perturbations in the upper mesosphere with in-situ measurements of ion and neutral density fluctuations at higher altitudes. Produce global maps of active gravity wave regions in the mid‐ and low‐latitude ionosphere over multiple seasons at all local times.
