AbstractThorpe analysis has been used to study turbulence in the atmosphere and ocean. It is quite clear that Thorpe analysis applied to individual soundings cannot be expected to give quantitative...

The Polar Mesospheric Cloud Turbulence experiment (PMC Turbo) was designed to observe and quantify the dynamics of small-scale gravity waves (GWs) and instabilities leading to turbulence in the upper mesosphere during polar summer using instruments aboard a stratospheric balloon. The PMC Turbo scientific payload comprised seven high-resolution cameras and a Rayleigh lidar. Overlapping wide and narrow camera field-of-views from the balloon altitude of ~38 km enabled resolution of features extendi...

AbstractA new platform for high-resolution in situ measurements in the lower troposphere is described and its capabilities are demonstrated. The platform is the small GPS-controlled DataHawk unmanned aerial system (UAS), and measurements were performed under stratified atmospheric conditions at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, on 11 October 2012. The measurements included spiraling vertical profiles of temperature and horizontal wind vectors, from which the potential temperature θ, mechanical energy...

An anelastic numerical model is employed to explore the dynamics of gravity waves (GWs) encountering a mesosphere inversion layer (MIL) having a moderate static stability enhancement and a layer of weaker static stability above. Instabilities occur within the MIL when the GW amplitude approaches that required for GW breaking due to compression of the vertical wavelength accompanying the increasing static stability. Thus MILs can cause large-amplitude GWs to yield instabilities and turbulence bel...

A companion paper by Fritts et al. [2017a] employed an anelastic numerical model to explore the dynamics of gravity waves (GWs) encountering a mesospheric inversion layer (MIL) having a moderate static stability enhancement and a layer of weaker static stability above. That study revealed that MIL responses, including GW transmission, reflection, and instabilities, are sensitive functions of GW parameters. This paper expands on two of the Fritts et al. [2017a] simulations to examine GW instabili...

PMC-Turbo is a balloon-borne experiment that will fly at an altitude between 35 and 40 km. It is designed to record gravity wave events in polar mesospheric clouds with high spatial and temporal resolution as they unfold across a large field of the sky. The project is motivated by the serendipitous observation of PMCs during the balloon flight of EBEX, an observational cosmology experiment which flew in 2013 at an altitude of about 35 km. EBEX included two star cameras, each of which had a field...

Abstract New capabilities for imaging small-scale instabilities and turbulence and for modeling gravity wave (GW), instability, and turbulence dynamics at high Reynolds numbers are employed to identify the major instabilities and quantify turbulence intensities near the summer mesopause. High-resolution imaging of polar mesospheric clouds (PMCs) reveal a range of instability dynamics and turbulence sources that have their roots in multi-scale GW dynamics at larger spatial scales. Direct numerica...
