Full mission name: SOUTHWAVE
The goal of this campaign is to undertake high-resolution soundings of mountain waves in the worlds' gravity wave hot spot region in Tierra del Fuego. The CORAL lidar was deployed to EARG station in Rio Grande, Argentina in November 2017. This is in direct vicinity to the SAAMER meteor radar and further instrumentation for mesospheric soundings. The SOUTHWAVE campaign is supported by project PD-206 by the Helmholtz association and the ARISE2 project of the H2020 programme of the European Union. Combined measurements with HALO aircraft soundings during the SouthTRAC campaign in autumn 2019 were also undertaken.
