D. C. Fritts, D. Janches, W. K. Hocking, N. J. Mitchell and M. J. Taylor Assessment of gravity wave momentum flux measurement capabilities by meteor radars having different transmitter power and antenna configurations Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres (1984–2012) 117

Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011JD017174

Key Points

  • Meteor radars can measure mean gravity wave momentum fluxes
  • Measurement accuracy depends strongly on the radar power and configuration
  • Radars having low power or asymmetric beams make errors in mean winds and tides
