Comparing hydrostatic and nonhydrostatic Navier-Stokes models of internal waves

Internal waves occur at a variety of temporal and spatial scales and are mechanisms by which momentum, energy, nutrients and biota are transported in lakes, estuaries and coastal oceans. In stratified systems, accurate prediction of water quality effects requires modeling internal wave evolution and...
