ANtarctic Gravity Wave Instrument Network (ANGWIN)

ANGWIN (in the Cornish English dialect ANGWIN means “the white”) is a “scientist driven” concept that is designed to develop a network of Antarctic gravity wave observatories, operated by different nations working together in a spirit of close scientific collaboration, in order to address scientific processes on a polar scale.

These observatories will run at existing Antarctic research stations and also run autonomously at more remote sites, chosen for their scientific advantages to the network. Initially started with a focus on mesospheric airglow observations, it is now expanded to include all gravity wave instrumentation.
