                         investigation of the two-dimensional structure of internal 
                         solitary waves (ISWs) that propagate near the Amazon River mouth. 
                         Three distinct groups of waves are identified according to their 
                         propagation direction. While cross-shelf ISW propagation has been 
                         previously documented, it is found that the majority of the waves 
                         propagate along the shelf and upstream of the North Brazilian 
                         Current (NBC). These ISWs appear in packets with interpacket 
                         separations of ~4 km, mean crest lengths of 10 km, and 
                         intersoliton separations of ~500 m. They are observed throughout 
                         the entire semidiurnal and fortnightly tidal cycles, but their 
                         origin appears to result primarily from the steady NBC, modulated 
                         by tidal currents, as it flows over shallow bottom topography. A 
                         Froude number analysis considering mode-1 nonhydrostatic linear 
                         waves propagating upstream of the NBC is found to be consistent 
                         with a regime of transcritical generation in the study region.",
