2Purpose
3-------
4This demonstration case can serve to different purposes:
5
61) The main one: study of the advection of a patch of ice in a bi-periodic channel with a slab ocean (i.e. 1 ocean layer)
7              ==> set ln_icethd=false in namelist_ice_cfg
8
92) Secondary: study of ice thermodynamics in the same basin
10              ==> set ln_icedyn=false in namelist_ice_cfg
11              ==> eventually change usrdef_sbc.F90 in MY_SRC to fit your needs
12
13-----------
14Experiments
15-----------
16Two experiments can be configured:
17
18a) A simple channel at 3km horizontal resolution (slightly variable => +- 10%)
19              ==> remove key_agrif in cpp keys
20
21b) Same as a) but with an Agrif zoom in the center 1:3, and 3 ghost cells
22              ==> add key_agrif in cpp keys
23
24----------
25How to run
26----------
27
28a) Compile and run the model once to get a mesh_mask.nc file with the following command:
29../../../makenemo -a TEST_CASES -n ICEDYN -m X64_ADA -j 4
30poe ./opa -procs 1
31
32b) Create the initial condition file for sea-ice (initice.nc) by running this python script:
33python ./make_INITICE.py
34
35c) Run the model a second time
36poe ./opa -procs 4

38---------------
39What to look at
40---------------
41In case of purpose 1, One can test
42---
43a) the advection scheme: Ultimate-Macho (ln_adv_UMx=T) versus Prather (ln_adv_Pra=T)
44   for a square (ice concentration) or a gaussian (ice volume)
45      with either a constant velocity (ln_dynADV=T)
46               or a constant ice-atm. stress, thus velocity is calculated by rheology (ln_dynRHGADV=T)
47      with 1 or 5 ice categories (jpl=1 or 5)
48
49b) the advection through an agrif zoom 1:3
50
51In case of purpose 2, one can test conservation of properties:
52---
53c) ice should not change at all if surface fluxes = 0 and SST = freezing temperature
54
55--------------------------------------
56Interpretation of the results (remarks)
57--------------------------------------
58- Prather conserves the max values but also creates side lobes
59- UM does not conserve the max but does not create side lobes
60- The "unmoving" ice (if any) is due to ice rheology which states that ice mass below a certain thresold (1kg/m2) is considered to move at the ocean velocity (thus 0 m/s)
