This project examined the theory behind gravity wave analysis and derived methods for detecting the presence of gravity waves from experimental data. To this end we used the Taylor-Goldstein equation and data gathered from the French Alps as part of an international campaign to detect and analyze gravity waves generated by topography. We were able to relate the experimental and expected values of the wavelength and frequency of the gravity waves using a fluid dynamics model.
