Abstract:

The interaction of internal waves and surface waves in water is explored in the regions where the effects of the interaction are small. Explicit solutions for an arbitrary internal wave are given for various kinds of boundary conditions, with a detailed discussion of the conditions under which they are valid. The connection of the solutions with the conservation equations is made explicit, and the modifications produced by viscous damping are outlined.
