Gravity Wave Training Document

         The objective of this page is to provide a basic understanding of the mechanisms of gravity
                            waves and provide a systematic approach to diagnose their existence

          This page was developed for the Joint NWS/NCSU Cold Fronts Aloft and Gravity Waves
                                           Symposium held in Raleigh - August 10-12, 1998
