Abstract

Internal atmospheric waves, subject to gravitational and compressional forces, have characteristics in close accord with measurements of ionospheric motions revealed by meteor trails. They are also consistent with other types of observational evidence on movement in the ionosphere. Many of the observations may therefore find their proper interpretation in terms of these waves.
