Acoustic waves directed along a discharge plasma column are shown to cause its stratification. It is shown that with an increase in the acoustic wave intensity, the electron concentration decreases in the compressive layers and increases in the rarified layers. Stratification occurs when the ionization frequency is higher than the wave frequency.
