Abstract

Local and remotely-generated internal tides (RITs) result in complex internal wave fields on continental shelf regions around the world. The drivers and the interactions between these local and remote internal tides are, however, still poorly understood. At energetic shelf locations (such as the Australian North West Shelf, NWS), this process is further complicated by the presence of both multiple local and remote generation sites (as much as ~1000 km away). This work investigates the characteristics of internal waves on the Australian NWS, focusing on the impact of RITs, using a combination of satellite data, in-situ observations, and numerical modelling.
