In the 1D linearized shallow water equations, the Courant number should be < 0.5 for stability in the original Leapfrog (LF) scheme. Here, we propose using the time-averaged heights in the pressure gradient force in the momentum equations. The stability analysis shows that the new scheme is neutral when Courant number <1. The scheme is 2nd order accurate in both time and space. It does not require iterations and can be easily applied in 2D or 3D wave equations. The numerical simulations for 2-D linearized shallow water equations are consistent with those obtained from a 2-time-step semi-implicit scheme.
