LONG-TERM GOALS. The goals of our research within the ONR BRC program were to advance the understanding of, and predictive capabilities for, forcing of the ionosphere accompanying acoustic-gravity waves arising due to terrestrial and atmospheric sources. OBJECTIVES. Our four-year research program was a collaborative effort between GATS, which employs afinite-volume FV code to describe the nonlinear dynamics of acoustic-gravity waves AGWs in a deep atmosphere, and the Naval Research Lab. NRL, which developed the SAMI3ESF model of the ionosphere. Employing the FV code results as inputs to the SAMI3ESF globalionosphere model enabled us to jointly address ionospheric responses to various anticipated AGW sources, parameters, and spatial distributions.
