New conservation laws bifurcating from the classical form of conservation laws are constructed to the nonlinear Boussinesq model describing internal Kelvin waves propagating in a cylindrical wave field of an uniformly stratified water affected by the earth’s rotation. The obtained conservation laws are different from the well known energy conservation law for internal waves and they are associated with symmetries of the Boussinesq model. Particularly, it is shown that application of Lie group analysis provide three infinite sets of nontrivial integral conservation laws depending on two arbitrary functions, namely a(t, θ), b(t, r) and an arbitrary function c(t, θ, r) which is given implicitly as a nontrivial solution of a partial differential equation involving a(t, θ) and b(t, r).
