Metadata for all tracers climatology

Reported by: arango Owned by: arango
Priority: major Milestone: Release ROMS/TOMS 3.6
Component: Nonlinear Version: 3.6
Keywords: Cc:


The climatology tracer (active and passive) metadata is now computed internally in mod_ncparam.F:

      DO i=1,MT
        IF ( THEN
          WRITE (stdout,60) MV, varid
        END IF
        DO ng=1,Ngrids
        END DO
        WRITE (Vname(1,varid),'(a)')                                    &
     &        TRIM(ADJUSTL(Vname(1,idTvar(i))))
        WRITE (Vname(2,varid),'(a,a)')                                  &
     &        TRIM(ADJUSTL(Vname(2,idTvar(i)))), ' climatology'
        WRITE (Vname(3,varid),'(a)')                                    &
     &        TRIM(ADJUSTL(Vname(3,idTvar(i))))
        WRITE (Vname(4,varid),'(a,a)')                                  &
     &        TRIM(Vname(1,varid)), ', scalar, series'
        WRITE (Vname(5,varid),'(a,a)')                                  &
     &        TRIM(ADJUSTL(Vname(1,idTvar(i)))), '_time'
      END DO

Notice that:

  • NetCDF variable name, Vname(1,:), is the same as the basic ROMS state tracer metadata.
  • Units, Vname(3,:), are the same as the basic ROMS state tracer data.
  • Default time attribute, Vname(5,:), is the same as the variable name but with the _time suffix. For example, temp_time, salt_time, and so on. Recall that other time-variables names are allowed provided that the input NetCDF variable has the "time" attribute with the appropriate value.
  • The following lines are removed from metadata file varinfo.dat because they are not longer needed:
    'temp'                                             ! Input
      'potential temperature climatology'
      'Celsius'                                        ! [Celsius]
      'temp, scalar, series'
    'salt'                                             ! Input
      'salinity climatology'
      'nondimensional'                                 ! [PSU]
      'salt, scalar, series'

I forgot to update the metadata when I updated the tracer climatology logic in src:ticket:569. Many thanks to Jiang-peng Liang for bringing this to my attention.

I corrected the format number in various ecosystem *_inp.h files when reporting the LtracerCLM switches. Thanks again to Jiang-peng Liang for reporting this typo.
