Abstract:

The theory of internal tidal waves is briefly reviewed in a demonstration of the importance of simultaneous observations at different positions. An analysis of data from 4 oceanographic stations indicated internal tidal waves with reasonable certainty in only 1 case. A series of data covering more than 2 or 3 days was considered necessary to permit a decision as to reality of internal tidal waves.
