Energetics

Are there any tools available to calculate energetics in ROMS, i.e. eddy kinetic/potential energy, energy conversions?

Reiner,

We recently published a paper which gives a method for complete energy budgets in ROMS:

MacCready, P., and S. N. Giddings (2016) The Mechanical Energy Budget of a Regional Ocean Model. J. Phys. Oceanogr., 46, 2719–2733, doi:10.1175/JPO-D-16-0086.1. http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/JPO-D-16-0086.1.

The associated MATLAB code is also available through GitHub: https://github.com/parkermac/energy
although there is likely to be significant difficulty in getting my code to work for someone else!

Cheers,

Parker

Thanks a lot - I will try the link on GITHUB.

Cheers, have a nice weekend!
