The properties of internal solitary waves (ISWs) in stably-stratified fluid systems will be discussed and observational evidence of the ubiquity and importance of such waves in the oceanic environment will be described briefly. Laboratory investigations by the author and his colleagues into the behaviour of so-called Mode-1 ISWs will be summarised but the main emphasis will be placed on reporting the results of recent experimental studies of Mode-2 ISWs (sometimes denoted “varicose” or “bulging” ISWs). Laboratory data describing the behaviour and properties of these waves will be compared with the predictions of two recent numerical modelling studies by other groups.
