[1] The conversion of depression nonlinear internal solitons to elevation internal waves has been observed twice at the South China Sea continental shelf break. Shipboard X-band radar, tow-yo CTD, ADCP and high frequency acoustic flow visualization of the process are presented. The data focuses on up slope propagation of depression internal solitons from a water depth of 264 m to a water depth of 110 m. Dissipation by large amplitude shear instabilities was observed. The kinetic energy density… CONTINUE READING
