We have investigated theoretically the thermoelectric power and the Nernst effect in unconventional density waves (UDW). Due to the presence of magnetic field, Landau levels are formed, and the low energy excitations change from gapless to gapped. The present results account consistently for the recent data of magnetothermopower in α-(BEDT-TTF)2KHg(SCN)4 obtained by Choi et al. (Phys. Rev. B, 65, 205119 (2002)). This confirms further our identification of low temperature phase (LTP) in this salt as UCDW.
