The fission of an algebraic internal soliton climbing onto a shelf in a two-fluid system of infinite depth is investigated. It is shown that, by using conservation laws of the Benjamin-Ono equation with variable coefficients, we can predict the number of solitons emerging from an incident solitary wave and their amplitudes. These predictions are also verified with numerical solutions.
