A spatially varying field mode is included in calculating the squeezing effect for a system of two-level atoms in the good-cavity limit. Two examples of a Gaussian mode field in a ring cavity and a plane-wave field in a standing-wave interferometer are used to demonstrate the quite general method. In qualitative terms, the squeezing predicted for plane waves is preserved. However, for a given value of atomic cooperativity parameter C, there is a degradation in squeezing because of the spatially varying field structure.
