Keywords: inhomogeneities in gravity field, atmospheric disturbances, analytical model, internal gravity waves
Аnnotation: It is shown that inhomogeneities in gravity field affecting the horizontal wind may cause the generation of internal gravity waves in atmosphere. The simple analytical model is considered and theoretical estimates of characteristics of such wave are obtained.
