Nonlinear internal waves
Nonlinear internal waves
Editor(s): Kateryna Terletska, Marek Stastna, Tatiana Talipova, Zhenhua Xu, and Ana M. Mancho
The special issue welcomes contributions presenting advances in, and approaches to, studying, modelling, monitoring, and forecasting of internal waves in stratified estuaries, lakes, and the coastal oсean. The scope of the special issue involves all aspects of ISW generation, propagation, transformation, and the interaction of internal waves with bottom topography and shelf zones, as well as an evaluation of the role of internal waves in sediment resuspension and transport. Breaking of internal waves also drives turbulent mixing in the ocean interior that is important for climate ocean models. Discussion of parameterizations for internal-wave-driven turbulent mixing in global ocean models is also invited
