Charakterisierung von Schwerewellen und Gezeiten aus Lidar-Messungen in der mittleren Atmosphäre

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: The knowledge of atmospheric waves is crucial to our understanding of the circulation in the Earth’s atmosphere. Depending on the weather conditions the daylight capable Rayleigh-Mie-Raman lidar at Kühlungsborn provides continuous time series of temperature and relative density profiles between 30 and 75 km altitude in the middle atmosphere. The general challenge is the separation of gravity waves and tides. In this thesis different parts of the gravity wave spectra are characterized regarding their seasonal behavior as well as during an extraordinary 10-day continuous lidar sounding.
