Abstract (English):
Observations of tidal internal waves in the Bransfield Strait, Antarctica, are analyzed. The measurements were carried out for 14 days on a moored station equipped with five autonomous temperature and pressure sensors. Vertical displacements of temperature revealed that strong internal vertical oscillations up to 30-40 m are caused by the diurnal internal tide. The waves are forced due to the interaction of the barotropic tide with the bottom topography. The velocity ellipses of the barotropic tidal currents were estimated using the global tidal model.
