Re: contact.m issue with fine grid on border of coarse grid

I assume this is not a bug but rather a limited functionality. As long as your nested grid would not cross the border or within few grid of the coarse model border, there should not be any issue. When doing interpolation from donor grid to receiver grid, I think you'd better allow couple of grids of...
