A Riemann Solver for Wet/Dry interfaces in Finite Volume Schemes

The wetting and drying processes have significant physical and biological impacts on shallow water systems and coastal environments. They can arise due to inundation effects on coastal mudflats and wave-driven run-up on beaches by tsunamis and dunes on periodic time scales. These effects can cause extreme devastating damages and coastal erosion. With a basic understanding of the role that a Riemann solver plays in solving the shallow water wave equations, and the basic finite volume discretization approach, we described several approaches to handling wetting and drying processes.
