History/Averages file output for a single sigma layer

#1 Post by Kosa » Tue Jun 04, 2019 5:04 pm

I'm trying to add new history file output fields that take a 3D field but only write the top sigma layer (e.g. SST or surface velocity). Thought I'd check if anyone else has already done this and could share some tips.

Thanks

You should check the Qout values in roms.in and turn on the Quick output feature. It already has the Usur, Vsur, and surT for surface fields.

Thank you! I had never looked into the Quick output.
