Yellow Sea Internal Solitary Wave Variability
Our studies are centered in an area south of the Shandong peninsula where the observations of Zhou, Zhang and Rogers  showed an anomalous drop in acoustical intensity at 630 Hz. For this region ocean-acoustic modeling studies are performed in conjunction with available SAR observations of internal solitary waves. Acoustic field intensity calculations show that for some frequencies a redistribution of acoustic energy to higher modes occurs.
