Flow dynamics for coupled surface and internal deep-water waves
Springer Nature Switzerland AG
This article determines the fluid motion underlying coupled linear internal and surface waves in a deep-water two-fluid-layer model (with the lower layer being of infinite depth). A detailed Eulerian description of the wave-field kinematics for coupled linear travelling waves is achieved using phase-plane analysis. The qualitative motion of individual fluid particles is elucidated through analysis of the relevant nonlinear dynamical systems from the Lagrangian viewpoint.
