Abstract:

The relationship of internal waves, with 2-to-20-minute periods, to surface waves was investigated. It was found that 1 the interaction between amplitude-modulated swell and internal waves may create internal waves of 2-to-20-minute periods 2 internal waves due to amplitude-modulated swell have the same characteristics as the modulation and 3 the resonance process is most efficient in the case of a modulation traveling in the same direction as the carrier wave of a swell.
