Lock exchange test case

The classic lock exchange test case, where two water masses with different densities are separated by a lock, which is removed at t=0. The computational mesh has 200 cells in the horizontal and 20 layers, with the layerthickness increasing to towards the surface. The hydrostatic solution is shown to the left and the nonhydrostatic solution to the right.
