Our statistical analysis of variations in the Doppler spectra derived during seventy-two rocket launches revealed four groups of apparent velocities of disturbance transfer: 0.5–0.8, 1–6, 7–9, and 15–20 km/s. They are related to acoustic-gravity, slow magnetohydro-dynamic, magneto-gradient, and possibly gyrotropic waves.
