This kind of "gravity wave" should be distinguished from the gravity waves referred to by cosmologists. This "gravity wave" should probably be more properly called a "density wave" or something of that sort.

Agreed. For accuracy purposes I had to leave it called a Gravity Wave, but posted a link to additional information.
