Description of BSH models

Main features:

  • three-dimensional shallow water equations, baroclinic, prognostic
  • shock-capturing scheme for advection (Kleine, 1993)
  • mixing length formulation for horizontal and vertical turbulence
  • falling dry and flooding of tidal flats
  • sea ice dynamics (Hibler, 1979) and thermodynamics
  • computation of heat fluxes atmosphere - ocean
  • tidal forcing using 14 tidal constituents
  • climatological boundary data for T and S (+sponge layer)
