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… 
Satellite Survey of Internal Waves in the Black and Caspian Seas
TLDR
A study of short-period internal waves in the Black and Caspian Seas from their surface manifestations in satellite imagery finds that IWs are generated primarily due to relaxation of coastal upwelling and inertial oscillations associated with hydrological fronts.
MULTI-MODAL DEEP LEARNING WITH SENTINEL-3 OBSERVATIONS FOR THE DETECTION OF OCEANIC INTERNAL WAVES
TLDR
A multi-modal deep neural network SONet is developed with multi-streams and late fusion, which performs a classification on the basis of training with both modalities and establishes a method to deal with missing modalities.
Results of the Caspian Sea satellite survey: internal wave climate
Results of satellite observations of surface manifestations of internal waves in the Caspian Sea are presented. Our work produced data on a spatial and temporal variability of internal waves of
Analysis of internal waves around the Korean Peninsula using RADARSAT-1 data
Surface signatures of oceanic internal waves (IWs) are often observed in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images since IWs change surface roughness through the interaction of small-scale ocean waves
Internal solitary waves in the China seas observed using satellite remote-sensing techniques: a review and perspectives
Internal solitary waves (ISWs) occur ubiquitously in China’s waters: the South China Sea (SCS), the East China Sea (ECS), the Yellow Sea (YS), and the Bohai Sea (BS). ISWs have long attracted much
Detection of internal waves in the Persian Gulf
ABSTRACT Identification and characteristics of Internal Waves (IWs) are widely used in a variety of industries, including shipbuilding, maritime, as well as oil and marine engineering. In this study,
Oceanic Internal Waves in the Sulu–Celebes Sea Under Sunglint and Moonglint
TLDR
Comparisons of stratification and barotropic tidal transport among the IWs generation sites indicate that the shallowing maximum Brunt–Väisälä frequency and strongest tidal transport around Pearl Bank are major factors contributing to greater IW activity compared to other generation sites.

Estimating Oceanic Mixed-Layer Depth from Internal Wave Evolution Observed from Radarsat-1 SAR
One Radarsat-1 SAR image acquired on 31 July 1998 was used to study internal wave characteristics off the northeastern coast of the United States. The image showed several trains of internal waves,

Phytoplankton growth in the sea is influenced by internal wave activity both through vertical displacements of the pycnocline, which cause fluctuations in the light environment for photosynthesis,

Evidence for baroclinic tide origin of internal solitary waves (ISWs) in the northeastern South China Sea is presented, based on 116 internal wave packets observed in satellite images from 1995 to
Nonlinear evolution of ocean internal solitons propagating along an inhomogeneous thermocline
Measurements of the upper ocean thermal structure show that on the continental shelves the thermocline depth may shoal or deepen generally depending on the bottom topography. Thermocline shoaling and

A sequence of three internal solitary waves of elevation were observed propagating shoreward along a near‐bottom density interface over Oregon's continental shelf. These waves are highly turbulent
