Mechanisms of the Internal Rogue Wave Formation

Talipova T.G.

A review of the physical mechanisms of internal freak wave formation in the oceans is presented. The ‎theoretical models are based on the modified Gardner equation obtained within the asymptotic theory. The ‎following mechanisms are analyzed: nonlinear dispersive focusing, modulation instability of nonlinear ‎internal waves, and wave transformation at the so-called turning points.‎
