Gravity Waves

On Sunday morning, the National Weather Service office in Great Falls, Montana, got not rain or flying creatures on the radar, however a marvel called "gravity waves."

In a sea of air above us, gravity waves are much the same as swells on the outside of a quiet lake or lake when you toss a stone into the water, as per meteorologists.

"In weather, the 'stone' disrupting generally quiet or stable conditions can be a serious thunderstorm, twists blowing over high territory or fronts. All of these climate marvels power air upward that would not be dislodged something else. As this air is pushed upward, it needs to sink down so as to stay in a condition of balance. It might bring numerous waves up and down for this state to be come to.

Basically, they are the waves produced when air is uprooted from a fair or quiet state.

Gravity waves in the air can be seen through clouds, which exhibit a swell like pattern in the sky. The clouds from gravity waves structure at the upper crest of the wave, uncovering this generally undetectable wonder.
