In many respects gravity waves (GW) still pose major questions both to
atmospheric science and oceanography. Important issues are GW radiation from
their various relevant sources, their propagation through and interaction
with the larger-scale flow, wave-wave interactions in general, wave
breaking, and finally the parameterization of these processes in models not
explicitly resolving GW. Also the observational record, both on a global
scale and with respect to local small-scale processes, is not yet
sufficiently able to yield appropriate constraints. The session is intended
to bring together experts from all fields of geophysical fluid dynamics
working on related problems. Presentations on corresponding theoretical,
modelling, experimental, and observational work are all welcome.
