A theoretical and experimental investigation of the phase configuration of internal waves of small amplitude in a density stratified liquid
Experiments were conducted to test the linear theory of internal gravity waves produced in a stably stratified liquid by the forced oscillations and the initial impulsive motion of a two-dimensional stationary disturbance. The measurements of the wave configuration in a medium whose density increased linearly with depth were made by means of a Toepler-schlieren system. The agreement between observation and prediction was found to be good.(Published Online March 28 2006)
