I have a little question related to ROMS/Utility/get_nudgcoef.F, first introduced in the post:
As described in the post, get_nudgcoef.F is designed to handle values in either day-1 or s-1.
Its logic follows the "units" metadata accompanying the nudging field inside the user's NetCDF file.
At the same time, ROMS/External/varinfo.dat file has (I'm picking M2_NudgeCoef as an example):
Code: Select all
'M2_NudgeCoef' ! Input '2D momentum inverse nudging coefficients' 'day-1' ! [1/s] 'M2_NudgeCoef, scalar' 'nulvar' 'idM2nc' 'r2dvar' 1.157407d-5
My question is---does the logic inside get_nudgcoef.F supersedes what's in ROMS/External/varinfo.dat?
In other words, is ROMS silently ignoring the 1.157407d-5 scaling factor written in varinfo.dat?
Obviously I could figure out the answer myself by adding write(*,*) statements throughout the code and determine what ROMS is actually doing.
I just wanted to try the message board before going there. Thanks for your time,
