CALCULATION OF THE AMPLITUDE AND POWER SPECTRUM OF INTERNAL WAVE IN THE SOUTH-EAST SEA REGION OF VIETNAM

Nguyen Ba Xuan, Tran Van Chung

Abstract


In this paper some indirect calculations of the amplitude and power spectrum of internal wave are presented  on basis of using the continuous temperature data measured at 2 moorings stations in the South-East sea  region of Vietnam. The calculated results show that: In the shallow continental shelf region during the  South-West monsoon, at the depths of 12 - 38 m, the average amplitude of internal wave has the values of 5 -  10 m; Whereas in the more deeper region during North-East monsoon, at the depths of 10 - 60 m, 70 - 220 m and 230 - 600 m, the average amplitude of internal wave has the values of 20 - 80 m,  1 - 5 m and  8 - 15 m  respectively; By using the power spectrum analysis of internal wave show that: The power spectrum of internal wave in the shallow continental region is less than of about 20 times in comparison with the deeper  region; The power spectrum of internal wave in the South-East sea region of Vietnam is complicated and  formed mainly by waves having periods of 3 - 24 hours, among them, the wave components with periods of  12 and 24 hours are dominance. The waves with period smaller than 3 hours are very small power.
