Internal solitary waves in the northwestern South China Sea inferred from satellite images
[1] Internal solitary waves (ISWs) in the northwestern South China Sea are studied from three spaceborne synthetic aperture radar images. ISWs are observed in the same area 18.5–20.5°N, 112–114°E.Expand

Global Observations of Open-Ocean Mode-1 M2Internal Tides
AbstractA global map of open-ocean mode-1 M2 internal tides is constructed using sea surface height (SSH) measurements from multiple satellite altimeters during 1992–2012, representing a 20-yrExpand

Parametric Subharmonic Instability of the Internal Tide at 29°N
Observational evidence is presented for transfer of energy from the internal tide to near-inertial motions near 298N in the Pacific Ocean. The transfer is accomplished via parametric subharmonicExpand

Remote sensing evidence for baroclinic tide origin of internal solitary waves in the northeastern South China Sea
[1] Evidence for baroclinic tide origin of internal solitary waves (ISWs) in the northeastern South China Sea is presented, based on 116 internal wave packets observed in satellite images from 1995Expand

Source and propagation of internal solitary waves in the northeastern South China Sea
[1] Large-amplitude internal solitary waves (ISWs) observed near Dongsha Island in the South China Sea originate in tide-topography interactions at Luzon Strait. Their arrival times at two mooringsExpand

Climate Process Team on Internal Wave-Driven Ocean Mixing.
Diapycnal mixing plays a primary role in the thermodynamic balance of the ocean and, consequently, in oceanic heat and carbon uptake and storage. Though observed mixing rates are on averageExpand

Internal solitary wave propagation observed by tandem satellites
Internal solitary waves (ISWs) are observed 2 times within 30 min in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image pairs from the Envisat and ERS-2 tandem satellites. Three pairs of SAR images were acquiredExpand

Long-Range Propagation of the Semidiurnal Internal Tide from the Hawaiian Ridge
Abstract The northeastward progression of the semidiurnal internal tide from French Frigate Shoals (FFS), Hawaii, is studied with an array of six simultaneous profiling moorings spanning 25.5°–37.1°NExpand

The Latitudinal Dependence of Shear and Mixing in the Pacific Transiting the Critical Latitude for PSI
AbstractTurbulent mixing rates are inferred from measurements spanning 25°–37°N in the Pacific Ocean. The observations were made as part of the Internal Waves Across the Pacific experiment, designedExpand

Estimating parameters of a two-layer stratified ocean from polarity conversion of internal solitary waves observed in satellite SAR images
This paper presents a method for estimating parameters of a two-layer stratified ocean using satellite SAR images. According to weak nonlinearity shallow water theory, internal solitary waves (ISWs)Expand
