Statistical estimates of internal waves in different
regions of theWorld Ocean are discussed. It is found that the
observed exceedance probability of large-amplitude internal
waves in most cases can be described by the Poisson law,
which is one of the typical laws of extreme statistics. Detailed
analysis of the statistical properties of internal waves in several
regions of theWorld Ocean has been performed: tropical
part of the Atlantic Ocean, northwestern shelf of Australia,
the Mediterranean Sea near the Egyptian coast, and the Yellow
Sea.
