Abstract : The relationship of internal waves, with 2-to-20-minute periods, to surface waves was investigated. It was found that (1) the interaction between amplitude-modulated swell and internal waves may create internal waves of 2-to-20-minute periods; (2) internal waves due to amplitude-modulated swell have the same characteristics as the modulation; and (3) the resonance process is most efficient in the case of a modulation traveling in the same direction as the carrier wave of a swell.
