Internal Gerstner waves on a sloping bed

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We provide an explicit solution to the full, nonlinear governing equations for gravity water waves describing internal edge waves along a sloping bed. This solution is based on the Gerstner edge wave. We discuss the relation of this internal, trochoidal edge wave to the analogous wave found in the linear theory, compare it with the classical Gerstner wave, as well as discuss the inclusion of Coriolis forces in the f-plane approximation.
