The Oseen problem in a viscous fluid is formulated for studying the transient free-surface and Marangoni waves generated by the impulsive motion of a submerged body beneath a surface with surfactants. Wave asymptotics and wavefronts for large Reynolds numbers are obtained by employing Lighthill’s two-stage scheme. The results obtained show explicitly the effects of viscosity and surfactants on Kelvin wakes.
