A Report on Glider Pilot Activities to document Lee wave-Events in Northern Germany and their Aims
A brief outline of the orographical, meteorological and infrastructural circumstances of wave flying in the region of the lower mountains of northern Germany is given and completed by a short historical overview. Aims and methods of a glider pilot initiative for gathering information on atmospheric waves are presented. Some effects are mentioned that intrinsically affect the resulting observations by using gliders for the exploration of the phenomenon. Statistical summaries of the gathered data are given as well as descriptions of some significant observations. Finally, a summary of possible future activities of the glider pilot initiative is provided.
