Topographically induced internal solitary waves in a pycnocline: Ultrasonic probes and stereo-correlation measurements

Dossmann, Yvan; Paci, A.; Auclair, F.; Lepilliez, Mathieu; Cid, Emmanuel

Description

Internal solitarywaves (ISWs) are large amplitude stablewaves propagating in regions of high density gradients such as the ocean pycnocline. Their dynamics has often been investigated in two-dimensional approaches, however, their three-dimensional evolution is still poorly known. Experiments have been conducted in the large stratified water tank of CNRM-GAME to study the generation of ISWs in two academic configurations inspired by oceanic regimes. First, ultrasonic probes are used to measure...[Show more]
