Not waving but gliding

Those of you with an interest in fluid mechanics (and especially those who enjoyed MA415: Waves this year) may be interested to hear about a project to fly gliders to record altitudes by using the lee waves formed downwind of mountains.

It’s another nice example of engineering coming together with “applied” and “pure” science, not to mention a certain “because it’s there” factor… Thanks to Ben Snow for the link!
