Any straight continental shelf of monotonic depth profile is shown to have as its entire complement of barotropic trapped modes (i) an infinite discrete set of ‘continental-shelf waves’, (ii) a single ‘Kelvin wave’, and (iii) an infinite discrete set of ‘edge waves’. The decomposition of energy density and fluxes into modal constituents is discussed.
