An exact solution of internal tides generated at continental slope
By using a coordinate transformation, an exact solution of internal tides is obtained when the bottom slope is linear and the Väisäla frequency is constant. Consequently the dispersion relations of free waves are presented. Compared with Baines solution, the solution derived here is more consistent with experiment.
