15#This is how:
16#Define maximal possible speed in open water v_max, e.g. 500m/s (soundspeed?)
17#Then work out minimal internal distance in mesh r_min and set
18#min_timestep = r_min/v_max
19#
20#Max speeds are calculated in the flux function as
21#
22#lambda = v +/- sqrt(gh)
23#
24# so with 500 m/s, h ~ 500^2/g = 2500 m well out of the domain of the
25# shallow water wave equation
26#
27#The actual soundspeed can be as high as 1530m/s
28#(see http://staff.washington.edu/aganse/public.projects/clustering/clustering.html),
29#but that would only happen with h>225000m in this equation. Why ?

31#of surface pertubation

54#Betas [0;1] control the allowed steepness of gradient for second order

56#lower values are more conservative. Values of 0 correspond to

58#
59# Large values of beta_h may cause simulations to require more timesteps
60# as surface will 'hug' closer to the bed.
61# Small values of beta_h will make code faster, but one may experience
62# artificial momenta caused by discontinuities in water depths in
