Internal Solitary Waves

  title={Internal Solitary Waves},
  author={Roger Grimshaw},
The basic theory of internal solitary waves is reviewed, with the main emphasis on applications to the many observations of such waves in shallow coastal seas, fjords, lakes and in the atmospheric boundary layer. Commencing with the equations of motion for an inviscid, incompressible density-stratified fluid, we describe asymptotic reductions to model long-wave equations, including the well-known Korteweg-de Vries equation, and several extensions. These include a variable-coefficient extended… CONTINUE READING
