Abstract : The report describes a study, made at Lake Travis, Texas, of seiches generated by atmospheric disturbances. Two simple geometrical models are used to calculate the periods of the first few modes of both the longitudinal and transverse seiches. These calculations are compared to wave observations analyzed with statistical techniques. A coupling between long-period pressure waves in the atmosphere (infrasonic wave) and the water surface is indicated from the experimental observations. (Author)
