Abstract:

Technique is described for computing internal wave induced magnetic field and magnetic field spectra as these would be measured by airborne magnetic sensors. The intended application is remote sensing of internal wave activity in the upper layers of a deep ocean in the wavelength range less than 1 km. A computer program INTWAVE is presented which is capable of accepting data from towed thermistor chain measurements. Numerical results obtained with INTWAVE are presented for the measured internal wave spectra reported by Nelson and Milder 4.
