Hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic internal wave models

Numerical models have become an indispensable tool for ocean and inland flow modeling. Such models typically use the hydrostatic approximation based on the argument that their horizontal length scales are longer than the vertical length scales. There are a wide variety of physical processes in ocean...
