Lock exchange

This example is in the examples/lockexchange directory and it demonstrates the nonhydrostatic internal lock exchange problem. Due to the coarseness of the grid being used, numerical diffusion acts to limit the formation of the KH billows along the interface. These billows can easily be obtained by increasing the resolution, following the simulation outlined by Fringer et al.  [2].
