Title: A generalization of the Rayleigh criterion for atmospheres with both energy and momentum sources: Implications for atmospheric wave propagation through convecting plasma

Abstract

The author applies a method of evaluating the feedback effect between atmospheric waves and sources of energy or momentum, to derive equations which can lead to wave generation in space or ionospheric plasma. This work is a generalization of the Rayleigh criterion. The author applies the results to the case of gravity wave generation in the F region.
