This paper reviews numerical wetting and drying algorithms for fixed grid, numerical tidal flow models. They typically fall into one of four categories: Thin film, element removal, depth extrapolation, and negative depth. The ability of the models and their associated wetting and drying algorithms to conserve mass and capture the physics at the wetting front is discussed.
