Jerlov water type: an integer value from 1 to 5.
option =
routine = mod_mixing.F
keyword = WTYPE
input = roms.in

This parameter selects amongst a set of coefficients that define the double exponential profile for shortwave radiation absorption calculated by Paulson and Simpson's (1977) fit to the data of Jerlov (1976).

WTYPE (roms.in) values 1 through 5 correspond to Jerlov's classification of water types I, IA, IB, II and III, respectively.

The model for the downward flux of solar radiation is:

where is the downward shortwave radiation at the sea surface. This parameterization is implemented in lmd_swfrac.F if called for. Downward shortwave data (or an analytical value) is required as input.

The parameters of this simple optical model are described and set in mod_scalars.F in the block headed "Water clarity parameters":

   lmd_mu1     Reciprocal of the absorption coefficient for solar
               wavelength band 1 as a function of the Jerlov
               water type. Units are meters.
   lmd_mu2     Reciprocal of the absorption coefficient for solar
               wavelength band 2 as a function of the Jerlov
               water type. Units are meters.
   lmd_r1      Fraction of total radiance for wavelength band 1 as
               a function of the Jerlov water type.

The values are:
