    Meet a young researcher who uses Aeolus data to measure atmospheric gravity waves

    Researcher Timothy Banyard, from the University of Bath, hopes to improve weather forecasting through the measurement of gravity waves (GWs). While GWs are difficult to measure due to their scale size and location, Tim recently demonstrated the Earth Explorer Aeolus' ability to observe GWs over the Southern Andes during the austral winter of 2021.
