Short summary
We discuss the relationships that link the observed fluctuation spectra of the amplitude and phase of signals used for the radio occultation sounding of the Earth's atmosphere with the spectra of atmospheric inhomogeneities. We demonstrate that the main contribution into the radio signal fluctuations comes from the internal gravity waves. These results may serve as the basis for the global monitoring of the wave activity in the stratosphere and upper troposphere.
