To understand the characteristics of ocean internal waves better, we study the dispersion relation of extended-Korteweg-de Vries (EKdV) equation with quadratic and cubic nonlinear terms in a two-layer fluid by using the Poincaré-Lighthill-Kuo (PLK) method which is one of the perturbation methods. Starting from the partial differential equation, the PLK method can be used to solve the dispersion relation of the equation. In this paper, we use PLK method to solve the equation and derive the

Based on the dispersion relation obtained in this paper, the expressions of group velocity and phase velocity of the equation are obtained. Under the actual hydrological data, the influence of hydrological parameters on the dispersion relation for descending internal wave is discussed. It is hope that the obtained results will be helpful to the study of energy transfer and other internal wave parameters in the future.
