Real parameters for waves described by nonlinear Schrondinger equation

  1. Feb 1, 2008 #1
    Hi all.
    I know that KdV and NLS can be used to model quite a few problems.
    What I am interested in is in the water wave context.
    I know roughly how to solve NLS analytically and numerically, but I am just curious in real world, what is the dimension of a real NLS soliton. Say, what is the wave number? what is the water depth? what is the pulse width etc.. I can hardly find this in the internet. (perhaps my search skills is way too bad)

    Can anyone share your information if you have? Thanks.
