A study is made of the possibility of the existence of transverse 'rarefaction zones' on a background of one-dimensional wave motion. The one-dimensional wave motion is described by an equation, which is a generalization of the well-known Schroedinger nonlinear equation, for a complex function representing the time envelope of the K-Th Fourier component of the wave motion. In two model cases it is shown that such solutions of 'rarefaction soliton' type can exist.
