Abstract : Twodimensional 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 twodimensional 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.
