Abstract : The concentration of ionospheric current at the equator in the form of the equatorial electrojet and the temporal perturbations thereof may be expected to generate internal gravity waves at low latitude. The purpose of this paper is to estimate the amplitude of the waves relative to that generated in the polar regions. (Author)
