Abstract:

Oceanic internal waves, particularly large non-linear ones, can have a significant impact on ship and submarine operations when they move through a region due to the surface currents and buoyancy issues such waves induce. Thus the Navy has a need for a predictive system that can tell a ship or submarine what the future internal wave effects will be in their region.
