Abstract : A theoretical investigation is made of free internal gravity waves in a rotating fluid. An exponential density profile similar to that of the Canada Basin of the Arctic Ocean is used. The dispersion relation and eigenfunctions of the vertical amplitude are calculated. An experimental investigation of temperature fluctuations at 60 and 125 meters was conducted at T-3 in the Arctic Ocean. Power spectra of the records show a rapid decrease of power with increasing frequency. (Author)
