Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 1D
Spatial extent Regional-Scale
Model domain Coastal, Marine
One-line model description A turbulent boundary layer model for the linearized shallow water equations
Extended model description This is a time-stepping point model which uses linear finite elements to determine the vertical structure of the horizontal components of velocity and density under specified surface forcing. Both a quadratic closure scheme and the level 2.5 closure scheme of Mellor and Yamada are used in this code.
