Atlas of Long Internal Wave Kinemathic Parameters

Atlas of Kinemathic Parameters of
Long Internal Waves

The presented Atlas contains the results obtained in the Laboratory of Hydrophysics of the Institute of Applied Physics RAS in the framework of INTAS-01-0025.
Maps of kinematic parameters for a model of internal wave propagation and trasformation:
- propagation speed of long linear internal wave,
- parameter of dispersion,
- quadratic and cubic nonlinear parameters
are calculated for Arctic Basin.
For computations of internal wave parameters we used hydrological data from World Ocean Atlas 1994 CD-ROM Data Set and Joint U.S. - Russian Atlas of the Arctic Ocean, 1998. Corresponding spatial grids for natural data in two sources are one degree and 50 km respectively.
