Numerical error assessment and a temporal horizon for internal waves in a hydrostatic model

Three-dimensional hydrostatic models are often used to represent stratified dynamics and large-scale circulations in lakes and coastal oceans. However, non-linear internal wave evolution is fundamentally non-hydrostatic, so any hydrostatic model will eventually fail if non-hydrostatic effects accumu...
