Short summary
Measuring the momentum transport due to gravity waves in the 80–100 km region is important for improving our understanding of the middle atmosphere, but it is still difficult to do at useful spatial scales. Here, we measure it using a method that has not been applied to the problem before, involving Doppler analysis of radar beams from multiple directions. The results are pleasing, and we conclude that the measurements may also be able to be made using cheaper, single-beam radar systems.
