Short summary
Observational estimates of tropical, large-scale fluxes of zonal momentum from troposphere to stratosphere remain challenging. We present an extended technique for estimating the daily amplitudes of these fluxes using data captured from balloon-borne radiosondes. Climatological analysis of our time series matches expectations of annual and interannual variability, indicating reliability in our estimates. Vertical resolution less than 1 km is found to be important for precise estimation.
