1. Introduction Internal waves are waves that oscillate within a stratified fluid. If the fluid is considered to be the atmosphere and the restoring force of vertical displaced air parcels is provided by buoyancy, such waves are called internal gravity waves or just gravity waves (GWs). GWs are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and their impact on the vertical transport and exchange of energy and momentum between the troposphere and the middle atmosphere is well known ( Fritts and Alexander 2003
