Abstract. Statistical estimates of internal wave appearance in different regions of the World Ocean are discussed. It is found that the observed exceedance probability of large-amplitude internal waves in most cases can be described by the Poisson curve, which is one of the typical curves of extreme statistics. Detailed analysis is done for the internal waves in the several areas of the World Ocean: tropical part of the Atlantic Ocean, the North-West shelf of Australia, the Mediterranean Sea near the Egyptian Coast and the Yellow Sea.

Short summary
Strong internal waves have a significant influence on underwater marine environment and off-shore engineering facilities. They induce noticeable currents and take part in the processes of mixing of water layers, suspending and transport of sediment particles and formation of sea bottom relief. We consider probability of emergence of large-amplitude internal waves on a base of instrumental measurements of internal wave field in five different regions of the world ocean.
