Abstract

During the 1992 STORM-FEST experiment, a moderate-amplitude singular mesoscale gravity wave propagated across Kansas and Missouri and into Illinois during a 14 hour period. The wave was also found to be accompanied by dry momentum surge of air. A study was conducted to investigate the gravity wave and momentum surge as the wave passed over the dual Doppler region. Information was obtained concerning the origin, maintenance and structure of the phenomena.
