We report upon an experimental study of internal gravity waves generated by the large-amplitude vertical oscillations of a circular cylinder in uniformly stratified fluid. Quantitative measurements are performed using a modified synthetic schlieren technique for strongly stratified solutions of...
Heuristics based upon ray theory are often used to predict the propagation of internal gravity waves in non-uniform media. In particular, they predict that waves reflect from weakly stratified regions where the local buoyancy frequency is less than the wave frequency. However, if the layer of...
This research presents the results of two interrelated sets of experiments examining the dynamics of plumes and fountains in two-layer and continuously stratified environments. The first study examines the evolution of an axisymmetric turbulent fountain in a two-layer stratified environment....
