Field observations in lakes, where the effects of the Earth's rotation can be neglected, suggest that the basin-scale internal wave field may be decomposed into a standing seiche, a progressive nonlinear surge and a dispersive solitary wave packet. In this study we use laboratory experiments to quantify the temporal energy distribution and flux between these three component internal wave modes. The system is subjected to a single forcing event creating available potential energy at time zero… Expand
