Abstract:

Internal waves exist in the ocean as a rule rather than an exception. Energy is transported by them in channels that are similar to sound channels. Their effect on naval exercises and equipment, particularly functions involving the use of underwater sound, can be expected to be more pronounced in these channels. Although theory and observation are still not adequate for a full understanding of the phenomenon, western literature prior to June 1963 contains more than 300 publications dealing with internal waves in the atmosphere, lakes, and seas. These publications are listed in the comprehensive bibliography which is part of this report. Author
