climbs and descends slightly along a track, we correct the pressure to a constant reference altitude ( ) assuming hydrostatic balance where z is the aircraft geometric altitude determined from the global positioning system (GPS). As the autopilot is trying to maintain a constant pressure altitude, the variations in P C along a leg, especially for longer disturbances, come primarily from altitude ( z ) variations. This kind of correction has been made for several decades over water using a radar

1. Introduction The overarching objectives of the Deep Propagating Gravity Wave Experiment (DEEPWAVE; see appendix A for a list of key acronyms used in this paper) were to observe, model, understand, and predict the deep vertical propagation of internal gravity waves from the troposphere to the lower thermosphere and to study their impacts on the atmospheric momentum and energy budget ( Fritts et al. 2016 ). Convection, fronts, flow over mountains, and spontaneous adjustments occurring at the
