Abstract
The horizontal velocities of the upper and lower layers associated with an internal seiche episode in a stratified lake are examined in relation to critical shear gradients necessary for the growth of unstable short period interfacial waves with frequency close to the so-called Brunt-Vaisala frequency. Experimental results are presented which help to clarify the conditions for the occurrence of the short period waves. Charts summarizing the findings of this study are presented which should be of help in predicting the occurrence of internal wave breaking in closed basins. (Modified author abstract)
