The modulation of linear short waves riding on a long finite-amplitude solitary wave has been analyzed numerically. It is found that the maximum modulated wave number, frequency, and amplitude of short waves always occur at the crest of solitary waves. This paper shows that the modulated wave number on the crest of solitary waves increases significantly as the amplitude of the solitary waves increases, and that the modulated short wave frequency and amplitude on the crest increase almost linearly.
