A workshop entitled "Internal Solitary Waves in the Ocean: Their Physics and Implications for Acoustics, Biology, and Geology" was held during October, 1998 in Sydney, British Columbia, Canada. It was jointly organized by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (MA, USA), the Institute of Ocean Sciences, (Sydney, BC, Canada), and the U. S. Office of Naval Research. More than 60 scientists from seven countries attended. Participants contributed papers prior to the meeting which were published on the internet at the Woods Hole web site. Those papers are reproduced here.

Helfrich, Karl R.; White, Brian L. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union and the American Geophysical Union, 2010-07-15)Large-amplitude internal solitary waves in continuously stratified systems can be found by solution of the Dubreil-Jacotin-Long (DJL) equation. For finite ambient density gradients at the surface (bottom) for waves of ...

(The Oceanography Society, 2012-06)The off-shelf region between 16.0° and 16.5°N in the southern Red Sea is identified as a new hotspot for the occurrence of oceanic internal solitary waves. Satellite observations reveal trains of solitons that, surprisingly, ...
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 ...
