(GV) provided in situ, dropsonde, and microwave temperature profiler (MTP) measurements extending from Earth’s surface to ∼20 km throughout the core field program (see Table 2 ). The GV also carried three new instruments designed specifically to address DEEPWAVE science goals: 1) a Rayleigh lidar measuring densities and temperatures from ∼20 to 60 km, 2) a sodium resonance lidar measuring sodium densities and temperatures from ∼75 to 100 km, and 3) an advanced mesosphere temperature mapper (AMTM

have to be derived from satellite measurements. In their study, Lee et al. (2009) used data from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) aboard the sun-synchronous Aura satellite to obtain the vertical structure of the northern annular mode for the SSWs from 2005 until 2009. Their data covered the height region between 300 and 0.001 hPa and showed different evolutions of the mesospheric anomalies from year to year. Since then, Aura-MLS observations have continued and will be used here to quantify the

analyzes the atmospheric conditions from the troposphere up to the mesosphere during austral winter 2014. We emphasize key circulation features during the DEEPWAVE campaign period and relate them to the climatological mean conditions. The different meteorological conditions are related to observed wave events [intensive observing periods (IOPs) with airborne observations and periods with only ground-based (GB) measurements as listed in Tables 4 and 5 in Fritts et al. (2016) ]. Section 2 provides
