Abstract

The dynamic response of the generated internal wave as surface water propagating over a submarine trench is investigated in a wave flume. The image processing technique is used to observe the response of density-stratified interface. Two typical distinct phenomena of internal waves were caught in the experiments, which are the traveling internal waves usually occurred as the density of lower layer fluid is higher, and the standing internal waves usually occurred as the density of lower layer fluid is lower. The quantitative results would be presented in the future.
