The two-dimensional width-averaged equations for flow in estuaries or resevoirs are derived, and the basic assumptions are stated. The heat and salt conservation equations are coupled to the dynamic equations through a state equation. A description of the general features of the numerical scheme and computational mesh used to solve the resulting set of partial differential equations is given.
