A high resolution modeling study is undertaken, with a 2.5-dimensional nonhydrostatic model, of the generation of internal waves induced by tidal motion over the ridges in Luzon Strait. The model is forced by the barotropic tidal components K1, M2, and O1. These tidal components, along with the initial density field, were extracted from data and models. As(More)
The area south of the Shandong peninsula has been of great interest to both oceanographers and underwater acousticians due to the measurements of Zhou et al. [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 90 (1991) 2042]. Over a period of years, in the summer, they observed anomalous losses in shallow water acoustic signals. They attributed the losses to acoustic mode conversions(More)
Investigation of the dynamics of internal gravity waves often includes the interrelationship between wave amplitudes, wave speeds, and wavelengths. These relationships are commonly thought of as dispersion relations. Because internal gravity waves are the result of nonlinear dynamics dispersion relations are a challenge to obtain in a quantitative sense.(More)
NRL-SSC is providing the best ground truth sound speed profile and geo-acoustic data possible for the geographic area selected for analysis. Initially, the sound speed and uncertainty were provided by the Modular Ocean Data Assimilation System (MODAS) and extractions from a global implementation of the Navy Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM). Models such as NCOM(More)
Analysis of tides and internal waves from model studies in the South China Sea is done using three techniques. We summarize results from standard Fourier methods, continuous wavelet analysis and the direct scattering transform. Because the Fourier and wavelet analysis are inherently linear methods their utility in application to nonlinear dynamics is often(More)
