resonance waves over thermals

A situation similar to resonance waves over hills, except that the wavy air is flowing over the tops of convective thermals or cumulus clouds.

Some of the kinetic energy of the rising thermals, when they reach and overshoot into a statically stable capping inversion, is converted into wave energy.
