Short summary
Studies of the propagation and evolution of the internal tide and development of non-linear internal waves as they cross the continental shelf are presented. Model simulations are based on wave theory, and the results are analyzed and compared with observations during the Coastal Mixing and Optics experiment. These waves are important: they transport momentum and energy, provide energy for vertical mixing, carry nutrients onto the continental shelf and resuspend and moving sediment.
