MAP scientists, forecasters, staff, ATC, and flight crews were essential in the pursuit of this research. Other members of the gravity wave breaking team—Dave Fritts, Greg Poulos, Samantha Smith, Joachim Kuettner, and K. P. Hoinka—aided in the track planning and execution. The Yale group was supported by the ATM division of the National Science Foundation (Grant 9711076). The Falcon flight hours were supported jointly by NSF and DLR. The C-130 was supported by the Met Office. The Electra was supported by the NSF and operated by the Research Aviation Facility at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Support for MAP from several European weather services is gratefully acknowledged. Appendix B was provided by Gerhard Ehret. Meteosat data was provided by Eumetsat.
