Hi
I'm using MY2.5 scheme for mixing.
I have used !AKT_BAK == 1.0d-6 1.0d-6 ! m2/s.
Model output shows subsurface temperature is lower than observation. Surface salinity is also low. My domain is the Bay of Bengal.
I think I should increase mixing. But how to do this in .in file. Which parameters value need to change?

I will be very glad hearing from any kind person.

Thanks

Azam

Hi Azam,

just an idea: Did you try switching between Laplacian and biharmonic horizontal diffusion? I.e., define either TS_DIF2 or TS_DIF4. I don't know whether the issue is too less horizontal or vertical mixing but I guess if your subsurface temperature AND salinity is too low you need more vertical convection? I am not familiar with the Bay of Bengal but if you have a lot of precipitation and river runoff you need more efficient convection in order to obtain a warmer and more saline subsurface. Maybe also try another vertical tracer advection scheme...

I've heard it's a difficult problem. We also have too little vertical mixing from all the fresh water input into the Gulf of Alaska. One idea is that we need to couple to a wave model and enable the wind-wave surface mixing in COAWST. Easier said than done; we haven't tried it yet.

Hi, c.drinkorn

Thanks for your reply. I didn't try it before. yes Surface T is higher but in 50 to 300 meters depth it is 2-3 degrees low. salinity is less problematic than temperature. Surface salinity is very fresh near river mouth.
Thanks again



Hi Kate

Thanks for your comments
