Abstract : Two-dimensional vertically homogeneous hydrodynamic computations have been available for practical application since the work of Reid and Bodine (1968). Basically, the time and space dependent variables are the horizontal x and y fluxes or velocity components, U and V, and the water column depth H or surface elevation. These are computed from the horizontal x and y momentum balances and continuity. Various developments of two-dimensional hydrodynamics differ in formulation of the momentum balances and the numerical forms of the equations for finite difference evaluation. An alternative to explicit computation of U, V, and H is a spatially implicit computation where the three variables are computed simultaneously over space at each time step.
