Abstract

Within the framework of a linear model of long waves in a two-layer ocean, we obtain the analytic solution of the problem of evolution of an axially symmetric initial displacement of the jump of density. In the process of adaptation of the fields, internal waves in the form of a decaying (in time) wave packet are emitted from the zone of initial perturbation. These waves are quasiinertial and their dispersion is conditioned by Earth’s rotation. We study the time evolution of the wave packet and the dependence of its characteristics on the width of the zone of initial perturbation and the depth of the jump of density.
