We consider a Boussinesq system of BBM-BBM type in two space dimensions. This system approximates the three-dimensional Euler equations and consists of three coupled nonlinear dispersive wave equations that describe propagation of long surface waves of small amplitude in ideal fluids over a horizontal bottom. We show that the initial-boundary value problem for this system, posed on a bounded smooth plane domain with homogeneous Dirichlet or Neumann or reflective (mixed) boundary conditions, is locally well-posed in $H^1$. After making some remarks on the temporal interval of validity of these models, we discretize the system by a standard Galerkin-finite element method and present the results of some numerical experiments aimed at simulating two-dimensional surface wave flows in complex plane domains with a variety of initial and boundary conditions.
