I think we should consider using the new, more accurate and less expensive equation of state by :

Mc Dougall?, T. J., D. R. Jackett, D. G. Wright, and R. Feistel, Accurate and computationally efficient algorithms for potential temperature and density of seawater, J. Atmos. Ocean. Technol., 2003.

see e.g. the mitgcm online documentation

Work on the implementation of eos10 including a boussinesq eos10 version is currently undertake at Stockholm (F. Roquet with the collaboration of Trevor Mc Dougall? and myself)

hopefully available for every body with 1 or 2 years.
