  • Decay and return of internal solitary waves with rotation 

    Helfrich, Karl R. (2006-12-18)
    The effect of rotation on the propagation of internal solitary waves is examined. Wave evolution is followed using a new rotating extension of a fully-nonlinear, weakly nonhydrostatic theory for waves in a two-layer ...
  • Nonlinear disintegration of the internal tide 

    Helfrich, Karl R.; Grimshaw, Roger H. J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-03)
    The disintegration of a first-mode internal tide into shorter solitary-like waves is considered. Since observations frequently show both tides and waves with amplitudes beyond the restrictions of weakly nonlinear theory, ...
