Generic Length Scale vertical mixing parameterization

GLS_MIXING
Option to activate Generic Length Scale vertical mixing parameterization (Warner et al., 2005) for vertical turbulent mixing of momentum and tracers.
related = CANUTO_A, CANUTO_B, CHARNOK, CRAIG_BANNER, KANTHA_CLAYSON, K_C2ADVECTION, K_C4ADVECTION, N2S2_HORAVG, ZOS_HSIG, TKE_WAVEDISS
conflict = BVF_MIXING, MY25_MIXING, LMD_MIXING
routine = gls_corstep.F, gls_prestep.F, roms.in

Wilkin: Here we would write a more verbose description of the GLS scheme (but not a full algorithm/science description). Basically just enough to help a user with a meaningful choice among the following suboptions:

The following CPP options modify the configuration of the Generic Length-Scale vertical turbulence closure:

CANUTO_A CANUTO_B CHARNOK CRAIG_BANNER KANTHA_CLAYSON K_C2ADVECTION K_C4ADVECTION N2S2_HORAVG

There are parameters in roms.in that determine whether GLS_MIXING implements the turbulence closure options of k-kl, k-ε or k-ω.
