The long-term goal is to develop a new forecasting tool to predict outbreaks of ionospheric disturbances that are driven from below by weather-generated gravity waves. The forecasting tool will combine three coupled models a weather model to simulate weather events such as convection in thunderstorms and their generation of gravity waves a wave propagation model to follow those gravity waves from their generation by weather events to altitudes throughout the thermosphere and an ionospheric model to predict the ionospheric disturbances produced by the gravity waves.
