Short summary
The dense horizontal sampling of atmospheric temperature profiles by the microwave limb sounder MLS on the NASA satellite AURA permit the estimation of global distributions of inertia-gravity waves (IGWs) in the middle atmosphere. We present and discuss the estimated global distributions of IGWs for July 2015 and January 2016. A dependence on the zonal wind distribution is obvious. The distributions of IGWs are a bit similar to the global distributions of small-scale gravity waves.
