Numerical solutions are presented for large-amplitude interfacial waves of extreme form on the interface between two fluids of different densities in the Boussinesq approximation. The flow in the lower fluid is irrotational, but the upper fluid may have constant, nonzero vorticity. Only symmetric waves are calculated. The results suggest limiting wave profiles for which separate portions of the interface touch, forming stagnant zones of one fluid imbedded in the other fluid.
