Gravity Wave Events Data from the NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory
Entry ID: OAR0082

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Gravity Wave Events is an archive of data from two sensor systems designed to
detect gravity waves at the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory, located in Erie,
Colorado, outside of Boulder. The first instrument is a monostatic acoustic
sounder, measuring height resolved profiles of changes in the index of
refraction of the atmosphere. The second system is a microbarograph array,
measuring pressure disturbances on the surface.
