A theoretical model is contrived that describes the propagation of internal waves under ice cover. According to the results obtained in the study, the flexures of the ice surface with a frequency close to but smaller than the Brunt-Väisälä frequency can gain amplitudes sufficient for recording internal waves. A comparison of the theory with observations showed a satisfactory agreement.
