Abstract KLEMAS, V., 2012. Remote sensing of ocean internal waves: an overview. The oceans are density stratified because of vertical variations in temperature and salinity. Oceanic internal waves can form at the interface (pycnocline) between layers of different water density and propagate long distances along the pycnocline. Internal waves on continental shelves are important because they can attain large amplitudes and affect acoustic wave propagation, submarine navigation, nutrient mixing… CONTINUE READING
