Abstract
    Two-dimensional and one-dimensional models of mesoscale hydrodynamics are discussed with particular emphasis on the possibility of combining them to obtain a three-dimensional description of the currents in seas and lakes.A particular attention is paid to the variable eddy viscosity multimode model developed by Nihoul (1977) and a numerical generalization of this model is presented in which, by successive iterations at each time step, the non-linear advection terms are taken into account in the one-dimensional Ekman model while the parameterization of the bottom stress is, if necessary, revised in the depth-averaged two-dimensional model according to the vertical structure.An example of application to the North Sea is given in illustration.
