#1145 closed Bug (invalid)

"explosive" isopycnal diffusion

Reported by: mouchet Owned by: gm
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: TOP Version: release-3.4
Severity: Keywords: diffusion
Cc: Anne.Mouchet@…, Olivier.Marti@…, Jean-Claude.Dutay@…

Description

The following behavior is obtained with configuration OFF_MY_TRC & NEMO v3.4

I used several tracers without sms and sbc (i.e. E-P forced to 0). Results are reported for tracers 1 and 6.
Tracer 1 is initialized homogeneously (1 everywhere), tracer 6 has initial vertical and horizontal gradients.

Activating the isopycnal diffusion results in a rapid divergence of concentrations.

The results presented hereafter are obtained every 5 years.
The situation is bad from the start for tracer 6, and degrades severely for tracer 1 after 15 years. Activating the correction of negative values does not help.

Ch. Ethé obtained exactly the same behavior on a different computer with his own version of the model.

Such behavior does not happen with horizontal diffusion (though conservation is not obtained, see #1134).

Many thanks for helping resolve this.
Anne
