52 episodes of clearly discernible waves were identified in the horizontal lidar scans over 3 months of data. All of the wave cases occurred at night when strong temperature inversions were present and winds were relatively light. The episodes have been show-cased in previous presentations by this author and his students. This new work reports on recent efforts to take a closer look at the episodes and attempts to quantify and relate as many of the variables as possible. The data analysis is incomplete at the time of this writing, but preliminary results suggest poor correlations between many of the quantities that one may expect to be strongly related. For example, wave period can be obtained three ways: (1) from the wavelength and phase speed obtained by lidar; (2) from the time-series of wind and temperature resulting from the tower data; and (3) from the stability profile as Brunt-Väisälä would predict. The lidar and in situ wave periods (which ranged from 20 - 138 s) showed little to no correlation with each other and were substantially larger than the periods predicted by static stability (which ranged from 9.6 to 36.1 s).
In addition to efforts of quantifying the waves and the environments, it has become apparent that many of the cases also exhibit characteristics of turbulence. In some cases, especially apparent in the lidar data, the wave structure is asymmetric and they appear to be deteriorating quickly over time suggesting that they may be breaking.
