Using absorption data measured by imaging riometer for ionospheric studies (IRIS) located at the South Africa National Antarctic Expedition (SANAE), Antarctica (72˚S, 3˚W), we extracted the parameters of gravity waves (GW) of periods between 35 and 55 minutes during the period from 16 to 30 September 2002, a period of major sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) in the Southern Hemispheric middle atmosphere.
