Abstract:

The article uses mainly data from many-day station 529, located in the central part of the Sargasso Sea. Four groups of internal wave periods in the 100-1000 m layer were determined 11-13, 16-18, 22-26, and 33-45 h. The dominant components were found to be oscillations with periods of 33-45 and 11-13 h. A regular pattern was observed in the change of the character of tidal waves with depth, this being of essential importance in calculations of mixing caused by internal waves.
