A numerical modeling effort was started which is now providing high- resolution 2-d simulations of compressible nonlinear gravity wave dynamics using a state-of-the-art pseudo-spectral code. These results are a substantial improvement over previous efforts to address the fundamentals of gravity wave breaking, spectral evolution, and momentum and energy transports in the middle atmosphere.
