Internal waves: measurements of the two-dimensional spectrum in vertical-horizontal wave number space.

Abstract

Thermistor chain measurements of internal wave motions below the thermocline in the western North Atlantic have been spectrally decomposed in vertical-horizontal wave number space. The measured two-dimensional spectrum exhibits a systematic deviation from the corresponding Garrett and Munk model for internal wave spectra.
