Abstract

Main features of high-frequency wave disturbances (periods ≤5 min), generated by the solar terminator passing through the Earth atmosphere in a speed-resonance mode, are theoretically investigated. With the troposphere model, formulated in this paper, and the solar terminator, considered as a wave source, the wave spectral density parameters have been computed. Both the terminator local speed, relating to the background, and the space-time lag of atmospheric heating are shown to essentially influence these features. Some possible methods for identification of high-frequency speed-resonant atmospheric waves are also discussed.
