Abstract Equations of motion for small-amplitude plasma oscillations interacting with the electromagnetic field in slowly varying density or temperature gradients are set up. The radio noise excited by a wave packet of plasma oscillations traversing such gradients using the WKB approximation is then calculated. A similar calculation is made for a density discontinuity.
