OBSERVATIONS OF ACOUSTIC-GRAVITY WAVES IN THE IONOSPHERE GENERATED BY SEVERE TROPOSPHERIC WEATHER Meteorological processes in the troposphere are a source of strong internal waves of a broad period spectrum which carry energy and momentum upward through the atmosphere.

Waves of periods longer than the Brunt-Vaisala period are termed gravity. The propagation of acoustic-gravity waves (AGW) from a source on the Earth's surface to the upper atmosphere is investigated with methods of mathematical modeling.

Acoustic-gravity waves — a special type of sound wave that can cut through the deep ocean at the speed of sound — can be generated by underwater earthquakes, explosions, and landslides, as well as by surface waves and meteorites. The propagation of pressure waves in a stratified, non-isothermal atmosphere is studied in the linear approximation.

It is found that acoustic and acoustic-gravity waves can be horizontally guided by the effect of the Earth’s thermocline alone, under very mild conditions on the temperature gradient steepness.

The effect of the Earth’s surface is also : L. Canella, B. Costantini, G. Nalesso, A. Jacobson. He then looked into whether acoustic-gravity waves may cause water to drift long distances, or if they simply recirculate them back to their original location.

Kadri worked the equation out for acoustic-gravity waves at various depths in the deep ocean, and found that these waves can transport water at a velocity of a few centimeters per second.

wind serves the wave energy and allows to carry wave system over great horizontal distance without significant leakage. The conditions for ducting is found to be quite different from the TG relation.
