Mode 2 Internal Waves in the Ocean: Evidences from Observations
We study the second mode of the oceanic internal waves, which arose interest in recent years. We present experimental evidences of mode 2 internal waves based on our observations that we performed in various regions of the ocean. In particular, we consider examples from the observations over the Mascarene Ridge in the Indian Ocean, in the Luzon Strait of the South-China Sea, and in the Black Sea.
