Abstract

Although three-dimensional (3D) simulations of tidal flows have become common over the past decade, their high computational cost remains a limiting factor to model large domains. This cost can be mitigated by appropriate criteria to optimize the vertical placement of the nodes. This article summarizes and integrates major results pertaining to the development of criteria for vertical nodal placement in 3D barotropic tidal models.
