dc.description.abstract The prevailing convective activity over tropics and subtropical regions acts as an important source for the generation of GW. Reunion Island (21°S, 55°E) is located in sub-tropics where a large number of convective phenomena occur. Hence, the GW studies at Reunion Island may contribute to a better understanding of middle atmospheric on seasonal and long term scales. A recorded high resolution Rayleigh lidar measurements for the present study. Temperature profiles are derived from raw photon count profiles and for the 30-90 km height range, with a vertical resolution of 300 m. The obtained temperature profiles are further subjected to extract and delineate the GW features en
