Abstract
The report contains the theoretical background material for a linearized internal gravity wave normal mode computational scheme implemented at the Defence Research Establishment Pacific. Currents predicted by this model have been used extensively in the production of simulated synthetic aperture radar images of internal wave signatures produced by moving vessels. A full derivation is given for the steady state internal wave fields produced by a distribution of fluid volume sources undergoing common uniform horizontal motion in a finite depth ocean.
