Abstract : Nearly all practical hydrologic flow problems are turbulent and, strictly speaking, three-dimensional. However, it is often an acceptable approximation for any of a variety of reasons (preliminary investigation; limits on expense, time or computing ability; prior knowledge; etc.) to reduce the dimensionality and/or the complexity of the flow representation. This article addresses the question of representing hydrologic flows as two-dimensional flows involving significant turbulent flow processes.
