Description

Added a new C-processing option WIND_MINUS_CURRENT to compute the effective wind forcing by subtracting surface ocean currents to input wind components in bulk_flux.F:

#ifdef WIND_MINUS_CURRENT
!
!  Modify near-surface (2m or 10m) effective winds by subtracting the
!  ocean surface current (J Wilkin). See:

!     in general circulation models. J. Phys. Oceanogr. 29, 671-691.

      DO j=Jstr-1,JendR
        DO i=Istr-1,IendR
          Uwind(i,j)=Uwind(i,j)-                                        &
     &               0.5_r8*(u(i,j,N(ng),nrhs)+u(i+1,j,N(ng),nrhs))
          Vwind(i,j)=Vwind(i,j)-                                        &
     &               0.5_r8*(v(i,j,N(ng),nrhs)+v(i,j+1,N(ng),nrhs))
        END DO
      END DO
#endif

Many thanks to John Wilkin for coding and evaluating this option.
