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.

Luzzatto-Fegiz, Paolo; Helfrich, Karl R. (2014-06)We perform simultaneous coplanar measurements of velocity and density in solitary internal waves with trapped cores, as well as viscous numerical simulations. Our set-up comprises a thin stratified layer (approximately 15 ...
da Silva, Jose C. B.; Magalhaes, Jorge M.; Gerkema, Theo; Maas, Leo R. M. (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, ...
Grimshaw, Roger H. J.; Guo, Chuncheng; Helfrich, Karl R.; Vlasenko, Vasiliy (American Meteorological Society, 2014-04)Internal solitary waves commonly observed in the coastal ocean are often modeled by a nonlinear evolution equation of the Korteweg–de Vries type. Because these waves often propagate for long distances over several inertial ...
