Solitons in Shallow Seas of Variable Depth and in Marine Straits
A previously derived equation and boundary condition [the generalized Kadomtsev‐Petviashvili system] is used to describe the propagation of stable solitary waves in open seas and marine straits. The GKP system is transformed, under specific geophysical conditions, into a simpler system that allows exact soliton type solutions. The curved wave crests corresponding to these solutions are plotted for several choices of the depth function and side boundaries.
