INTERNAL WAVE GENERATION BY SUBMERGED BODIES: MEAN FLOW EFFECTS

The basic physical processes which are associated with the passage of a body through density stratified environment and which result in disturbance motions which are steady in a reference frame moving with the body are systematically investigated. A comparison of the relative internal wave making efficiency of the various mechanisms is made, based on the internal wave energy production rates associated with the mechanisms as functions of the sensible parameters of the problem.
