Hi~ I'm using ROMS2.1 and I've got some problem when I
put tidal effect. My case is North Pacific case(North-west Pacific region) and my cppdefs option is

The problem is when I add tide with 'M2 S2 N2 K2 K1 O1 P1 Q1 Mf Mm'
the model always blows up except when I add only 'M2 S2'. I want to put more than 'M2 S2' but it doesn't work! Anyone knows what I'm missing?
I use 'TPXO6.nc'.
Thanks in advance.

I can successfully add the 8 diurnal and semidiurnal constituents. I do need a short timestep, however. Does yours blow up during the timestepping? Have you tried smaller timesteps? Have you tried *much* smaller timesteps?

Yes, It stopped while calculating a time step.Thanks Kate~ And I'll try

to reduce the time step~

By the way, I am just wondering why should I change the time step?

Is the time step change concerned with blow up ?

I think the time step is just the time step.

I don't understand....

Would you mind explaining the reason?

Thanks in advance and Have a good day~

There will be a timestep beyond which the model will be unstable. This stability boundary depends on many things, including numerical scheme used, grid spacing, and maximum velocity. Adding tides increases the maximum velocity and you could therefore need a shorter timestep. Also, adding barotropic tides could lead to the need for a shorter baroclinic step to resolve things like bottom stress.

What a detail answer! Thanks for a Gooooooood explanation.

I'll apply the shorter time step and let you know how it goes.

Thanks again! And have a GOOD day~
