Abstract : Internal waves are cyclic depth oscillations of a density boundary within the volume of the medium. The effects of these waves in the ocean have been observed in both the propagation of underwater sound and hydrographic station data. This report reviews some of the technical literature with the intent of presenting and describing, in a simplified way, the characteristics of the internal waves of the ocean. Wave propagation velocities, lengths, and periods will be discussed, as well as some of the other factors of their occurrence. (Author)
