The nonlinear propagation of a lower hybrid (l.h.) disturbance in uniform and nonuniform plasmas is computed, consistently with the finite amplitude density modifications due to the ponderomotive forces originated by the radio frequency (r.f.) power itself. Strong spectral broadening is shown to occur due to the coupling with magnetized acoustic waves. © 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
