The following shows MTP's IAC details of SOLVE flight.


This flight had NO wave events, and a total Wave Score of 0.00.  Three candidates failed to meet the amplitude criterion near flight level.

Figure 1.  Flight track.

Figure 2.   CTC.

Figure 3.  IAC for entire flight.  The one candidate wave event is at 99.0 ks (3.5 hrs).  The feature at 83 ks exhibits no wave structure near flight level.

Figure 4.  Zoom of 1st candidate wave event (3.5 hrs), having a 194 meter amplitude at 13 km.  This is below my 200 meter criterion for inclusion in the mountain wave statistics.  Nevertehelss, a well-defined pattern of wave structure definitely exists.
