[1] In this study, we simulated orographic gravity waves (OGWs) over Antarctica using a T213L250 general circulation model (GCM). The GCM has a fine vertical resolution of 300 m throughout the middle atmosphere. The simulation was run for a 1-year period. Results from 21–28 June were primarily considered. OGWs are excited by katabatic winds that travel down the surface slopes of the Antarctic ice sheet. A strong eastward katabatic wind blows over the west coast of the Ross Sea at the approach… CONTINUE READING
