information about the various datasets used in this study. In section 3 , we discuss specific tropospheric flow regimes and forcing conditions during DEEPWAVE. Section 4 is devoted to the tropopause layer. The stratospheric and mesospheric wind and thermal conditions providing the ambient atmospheric profiles for deep propagating gravity waves are described in section 5 . There, planetary wave activity and its impact on the location of the PNJ and the polar vortex are discussed. Special attention is

system and the MLT observations it assimilates are described in section 2 . Reanalysis experiments for the 2014 austral winter are outlined in section 3 . Reanalyzed temperatures and winds in the MLT are validated against independent observations in section 4 . The 0–100-km reanalysis products are applied in section 5 to delineate aspects of planetary-wave dynamics specific to the greater New Zealand region that potentially impacted MLT gravity waves observed during DEEPWAVE. Major scientific

), which turn out to be periods when mountain waves were excited by the flow across the Scandinavian mountain ridge. These perturbations are correlated with an enhanced tropospheric wind and a jet stream near the tropopause ( Fig. 2b ). Most noticeable are the downward-propagating wind anomalies in the period 3–4 December 2013. The upper-stratospheric and mesospheric winds show a remarkable variability, which probably results from planetary waves disturbing the polar vortex during this period. Fig . 2

linear mountain-wave theory ( Smith 1979 ). Moreover, there are numerous numerical studies about transiently forced mountain waves. Lott and Teitelbaum (1993a , b ) investigated the wave dynamics in a 2D linear time-dependent model with transient incident stably stratified flow. Chen et al. (2005 , 2007 ) and Hills and Durran (2012) extended the work of Lott and Teitelbaum (1993a , b ) and studied the impact of the flow of a time-dependent barotropic planetary square wave in a uniformly
