Abstract:

The current research project investigates the interaction of internal gravity waves with topography. Its specific objectives are to assess the role of reflection and scattering at topography in the redistribution of energy within the internal wave band and in providing energy for boundary mixing, to determine the modifications of the deep ocean internal wave field when it propagates up the continental slope onto the shelf and to compare this remotely forced wave field with the locally generated field.
