Long Nonlinear Internal Waves

  title={Long Nonlinear Internal Waves},
  author={Karl R. Helfrich and Kendall Melville},
Over the past four decades, the combination of in situ and remote sensing observations has demonstrated that long nonlinear internal solitary-like waves are ubiquitous features of coastal oceans. The following provides an overview of the properties of steady internal solitary waves and the transient processes of wave generation and evolution, primarily from the point of view of weakly nonlinear theory, of which the Korteweg-de Vries equation is the most frequently used example. However, the… CONTINUE READING
