18 MCS GW Detection Conclusions Corwin Wright,

19 MCS GW Detection MCS is an excellent platform for studying atmospheric internal gravity waves MCS results are limited by resolution in many places Clear climatological features can be observed, and key sources identified The seasonal cycle is clearly evident. Large potential still exists for exploring the data Conclusions Corwin Wright, submitted to Icarus: A one-year seasonal analysis of Martian gravity waves using MCS Data
