, closing the outer loop, which repeats every 6 h and generates a new analysis every 6 h. To better resolve tides in the MLT (see section 4 ), here, we supplement the 6-h analysis with outer-loop forecast backgrounds from the next cycle at 1-h intervals from +1 to 5 h after initialization to provide a seamless global time series of 1-h resolution. b. System components 1) Forecast model Hogan et al. (2014) provide detailed descriptions of the operational configuration of the forecast model, which is

. Data sources Operational analyses of the Integrated Forecast System (IFS) of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are used to provide meteorological data to characterize the atmospheric situation. The 6-hourly operational analysis and hourly forecast fields of the IFS cycle 40r1 have a horizontal resolution on the reduced linear Gaussian grid of about 16 km (T L 1279) and 137 vertical model levels (L137) from the ground to ~80 km (0.01 hPa) with layer thicknesses gradually

altitude range, the lidar observations are complemented with temperatures simulated numerically by the Advanced Research version of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model (ARW; Skamarock and Klemp 2008 ). Our goal is to determine the wave characteristics from the lower troposphere to the mesosphere. For this purpose, we combine and analyze the lidar temperature measurements and the validated mesoscale simulation results. Prerequisites of this approach are high-resolution numerical

levels, and a model top at 0.01 hPa, with numerical damping starting at 10 hPa ( Jablonowski and Williamson 2011 ). Moreover, mesoscale numerical simulations with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF; 1 Skamarock et al. 2008 ; Skamarock and Klemp 2008 ) Model are performed. With the use of Advanced Research WRF version 3.7, atmospheric simulations are generated processing operational ECMWF analyses as initial and boundary conditions. Two nested model domains are centered at 43°S, 169°E over
