This poster presents an overview of the first night of observations at Lauder which includes an amazing variety of wave activity.

The Deep Propagating Gravity Wave Experiment [DEEPWAVE] is a comprehensive international measurement and modelling program designed to characterize and predict the generation and propagation of deeply propagating atmospheric waves with measurements extending from the ground to ~100 km altitude. These waves typically arise from sources located at lower altitudes such as storms, frontal weather systems and mountain ranges, and then dissipate at high altitudes in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (>80 km altitude) depositing large amounts of momentum.
