Abstract:

Nonlinear internal solitary waves ISWs are thought to be one of the causes of the formation of some of the largest sediment waves over the northern South China Sea and onset of the sediment resuspension events. The long-term scientific goals are to understand the energy dissipation of large amplitude ISWs at the last stage of the trans-basin propagation and the relationship between the energy dissipation of ISWs and particle resuspension.
