In the framework of the linear theory for long waves, the paper studies internal waves generated by a semi-diurnal barotropic tide impinging on a bottom ridge at an arbitrary angle. The ocean is assumed to be double-layered. In the vicinity of the ridge, whose height is continuously changing, geostrophic flows occurring due to the inclination of the free surface and interface are considered. The dependencies of the generated wave's amplitudes on the angle of incidence of the tide and on the magnitude and direction of the geostrophic current velocity are determined, allowing a conclusion that the current contributes to the generation of internal waves.
