Abstract

The structure of the velocity field induced by internal solitary waves of the first and second modes is determined. The contribution from second-order terms in asymptotic expansion into the horizontal velocity is estimated for the models of almost two- and three-layer fluid for solitons of positive and negative polarity. The influence of the nonlinear correction manifests itself firstly in the shape of the lines of zero horizontal velocity: they are curved and the shape depends on the soliton amplitude and polarity, while for the leading-order wave field they are horizontal. Also the wave field accounting for the nonlinear correction for mode I has smaller maximal absolute values of negative velocities (near-surface for the soliton of elevation, and near-bottom for the soliton of depression) and larger maximums of positive velocities. For solitary waves of negative polarity, which are the most typical for hydrological conditions in the ocean for low and middle latitudes, the situation is the opposite. The velocity field of the mode-II soliton in a smoothed two-layer fluid reaches its maximal absolute values in a middle layer instead of near-bottom and near-surface maximums for mode-I solitons.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 April 2018.
All research outputs
#10,199,267
of 12,768,104 outputs
Outputs from European Physical Journal E -- Soft Matter
#331
of 441 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#206,397
of 273,470 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Physical Journal E -- Soft Matter
#14
of 20 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,768,104 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 441 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.8. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,470 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 20 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 5th percentile – i.e., 5% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
