Weakly nonlinear reflection of internal waves from uniform slopes produces higher harmonics and mean fields; the expressions are here derived for constant stratification and with Coriolis effects fully included, i.e. the horizontal component̃ f of the earth rotation vector (referred to as “non-traditional”) is taken into account. Uniformity in one of the horizontal directions is assumed. It is shown that solutions can be as readily derived with as without f̃ ; hence there is no need to make the… CONTINUE READING
