Northern Hemisphere for which the biases were mainly reduced by implementation of mountain drag schemes, the parameterizations for the convectively generated IGWs proved specifically important in the Southern Hemisphere ( Chun et al. 2001 ) which is mainly covered by oceans. In this regard, Bossuet et al. (1998) implemented a simple scheme which relates the gravity wave momentum fluxes to the precipitation flux as an index of convective activity in the model. Following Lindzen (1981) , they applied

investigate the different sources of gravity waves under favorable atmospheric conditions for deep vertical propagation, a climatological local maximum in gravity wave (GW) activity (a so-called hotspot) was sought in the Southern Hemisphere (SH) during austral winter. Besides the southern Andes, the Antarctic Peninsula, Tasmania, and other small islands in the Southern Ocean, the South Island (SI) of New Zealand constitutes one of several hotspots of stratospheric gravity wave activity in the Southern
