Hi all, good?

Dears, I work on Equatorial Atlantic ocean and i would like to share my first result. I started to generate the differences between the ROMS-SODA model data and got this image (attached). I realized that there are differences of positive SST on the Continental Shelf and negative SST near Equatorial range and northwest domain. I would like some suggestions on what might be happening with the integrations. Note that I did a seasonal climatology from 1985 to 2015, both the SODA data and the ROMS data, I'm suspicious that it might be the mixing layer, I used a 50 meter layer. But I did an experiment with a 200 meter mixing layer and I also calculated the differences and the results are similar.

I know I should have calculated the differences with WOA or AVHRR data (I will still do this), but I was curious about this result and would like to know how you evaluate those differences. Thanks in advance!

Best regards!

We don't have anywhere near enough information about what you did to know what's going on. 50 m mixed layer? What vertical mixing scheme? What horizontal mixing scheme? What atmospheric forcing?

1. 50 m mixed layer?
Yes

2. What vertical mixing scheme?
AKT_BAK == 1.0d-6 1.0d-6 ! m2/s
ad_AKT_fac == 1.0d0 1.0d0 ! nondimensional

AKV_BAK == 1.0d-5 ! m2/s
ad_AKV_fac == 1.0d0 ! nondimensional

2.1. What horizontal mixing scheme?

TNU2 == 0.1d0 0.1d0 ! m2/s
TNU4 == 5.0d0 5.0d0 ! m4/s
ad_TNU2 == 0.0d0 0.0d0 ! m2/s
ad_TNU4 == 0.0d0 0.0d0 ! m4/s

VISC2 == 10.0d0 ! m2/s
VISC4 == 8.0d+7 ! m4/s
ad_VISC2 == 0.0d0 ! m2/s
ad_VISC4 == 0.0d0 ! m4/s

In my arquive.h

/* vertical mixing */
#ifdef SOLVE3D
# define SOLAR_SOURCE
# undef WTYPE_GRID
# define LMD_MIXING
# ifdef LMD_MIXING
# define LMD_RIMIX
# define LMD_CONVEC
# define LMD_SKPP
# undef LMD_BKPP
# define LMD_NONLOCAL
# define LMD_SHAPIRO
# undef LMD_DDMIX
# endif
# undef GLS_MIXING
# undef MY25_MIXING
# if defined GLS_MIXING || defined MY25_MIXING
# define KANTHA_CLAYSON
# define N2S2_HORAVG
# endif
#endif

3. What atmospheric forcing?
CFSR 6-hourly.

If it helps: Settings I used to configure the grid in get_gridinfo.m:
hmin = 150.;
hmax = 5000;
hmax_coast = 500;
n_filter_deep_topo = 4;
n_filter_final = 2;
rmax = 0.45;
sph = 'T';

I'm sending my .in and .h files in annex.

Did you add climatology for SST? If not, I would add climatological monthly data for temperature and give it a try. I did that and my results were better. Also, don't forget it's a model and you are comparing with a reanalysis, and therefore, you cannot expect D_sst approximately 0.

Cheers,
Matheus
