The effect of rotation on the propagation of internal solitary waves is examined. Wave evolution is followed using a new rotating extension of a fully-nonlinear, weakly nonhydrostatic theory for waves in a two-layer system. When a solitary wave solution of the non-rotating equations is used as the initial condition the wave initially decays by radiation of longer inertia-gravity waves. The radiated inertia-gravity wave always steepens, leading to the formation a secondary solitary-like wave.doi:10.1063/1.2472509 fatcat:fdrhtad5qreo3c7w4tcsqws67e
