Packets of surface gravity waves of constant frequency and similar raised cosine envelopes were generated with a variety of amplitudes by means of a hydraulic paddle. The behaviour of each packet was observed with two capacitance probes, one near the paddle and the other at some distance along the tank. In the time domain each packet was observed to evolve into a soliton and a "tail" as it traveled down the tank. In the frequency domain the initial spectral peak was observed to split into twodoi:10.1007/978-3-642-84847-6_13 fatcat:6efyoomktnb4pcujgaigimkmz4
