Significant wave height = 0

#1 Post by liangliang » Fri Aug 02, 2013 5:06 am

My case is about roms-swan coupling . The domain is 1200m*1200m, slope=1/8.
The max depth =12m , min depth =0.1m. I plot it with hslope.m, which can be found in attachments.
The boundary in ocean is :
ad_LBC(isFsur) == Cha Per Clo Per ! free-surface
ad_LBC(isUbar) == Fla Per Clo Per ! 2D U-momentum
ad_LBC(isVbar) == Fla Per Clo Per ! 2D U-momentum
ad_LBC(isUvel) == Gra Per Clo Per ! 3D U-momentum
ad_LBC(isVvel) == Gra Per Clo Per ! 3D V-momentum
ad_LBC(isMtke) == Gra Per Clo Per ! mixing TKE

ad_LBC(isTvar) == Gra Clo Gra Gra \ ! temperature
Gra Clo Gra Gra ! salinity

The boundary in swan is :
BOUNDPAR1 SHAPESPEC JONSWAP 3.3 PEAK DSPR DEGREES
BOUNDPAR2 SEGMENT IJ 0 0 0 60 CONSTANT PAR 2. 10. 10. 30


I can run it ,and I get ocean_his.nc.
But I find the significant wave height in the middle domain are all 0.
I have just run this case by swan, the significant wave height is right .
Could someone tell me why this happen ?

just a quick guess - but did you run this tiled 1x2?

Thank you for your reply ,Warner !
My case is changed from inlet_case.
My computer is Inter core i7
So i set that
coupling inputfile :
Nthreads(ocean) = 4
Nthreads(waves) = 4
ocean inputfile :
NtileI == 2 ! I-direction partition
NtileJ == 2 ! J-direction partition
run it by command
mpirun -np 8 ./oceanM coupling_inlet_test.in
my swan input file is generated by roms2swan.m.
I still not resolve it. This is very strange. Could you give me some advice ?

I find the problem is the boundary condition. If I give Cloesd condition on the south and north. The significant wave height is OK. But if the boundary is periodic , the significant wave height in the middle domain are all 0 . Could someone give me some advice ?

Hi warner,
I find you are right ! I make some test case. The grid is Lm=60 Mm=60, if I set Nthreads(ocean) = 1
Nthreads(waves) = 7 , NtileI == 1 NtileJ == 1 ;the Hsig value in j=1 and j=61 are all 0. PIC-1

I aslo try to compile ROMS by two threads and set Nthreads(ocean) = 1 Nthreads(waves) = 1 , NtileI == 1 NtileJ == 1, the picture of Hisg like PIC-1. Is there something wrong in my case ? Or how should I set Nthreads ,NtileI and NtileJ ? Thank you !

Well, that looks to me like a parallel bug. Periodic conditions are very tricky in distributed-memory (MPI). It seems that a parallel exchange is missing somewhere during the coupling.

Hi arango,
Thank you for your reply !
My case is roms-swan coupling. The case could be calculated by compiling serial ?
And this way could avoid this problem ?

It's certainly worth a try. If you get a different answer, that's the proof you need of a parallel bug.

It's hard to compile serial . There are some errors when I compile it .
ocean_coupler.f90:298.32:
ocean_coupler.f90:298.32:
USE distribute_mod, ONLY : mp_reduce
CALL MCTWorld_init (Nmodels, MPI_COMM_WORLD, OCN_COMM_WORLD,
CALL mpi_comm_rank (OCN_COMM_WORLD, MyRank, MyError)
It seems only for MPI compiling . In addition, this case should need two threads : one for ocean; another for swan . In the couple.in file ,there are two parameter Nthreads(ocean) and Nthreads(waves). I must set Nthreads(ocean)=1 and Nthreads(waves)=1 at least.

i have not been using the Rutgers model for coupling in a while. But if you want to use a more recent version of the coupling, you can try our COAWST modeling system, with a more recent version of swan, and the vortex force method, etc.
send me an email at jcwarner@usgs.gov
if you would like to try that.
