Abstract:

Any theory based on monochromatic linear wave dynamics is too simple to properly interpret or predict anything that involves a continuum of frequencies like a pulse of wave energy. Through case studies of scattering events of realistic non-random internal wavefields an important step will be taken towards developing a capability to predict internal wavefield characteristics near sloping topography and the generation of near-slope currents.
