what the config manager could do, with which file and tool

Here is a list of tools that could be used in the config manager, depending of which input files we get. Of course we could still add other tools to this list.

Coordinate

input : low resolution coordinates

  • option 1 : refine ORCA grid
    • AGRIF\_create\_coordinates
    • GRIDGEN tools
    • BMGtools

Bathymetry

no input

  • option 1 : create Bathymetry from a bathymetry dataset
    • OPABAT
    • Met Office? IDL tools
    • BMGtools, based on SCRIP.
    • AGRIF\_create\_bathy

input : low resolution bathymetry

  • option 1 : refine Bathymetry
    • BMGtools (Ifremer)
    • AGRIF\_create\_bathy

input : high resolution bathymetry

  • option 1 : extract Bathymetry
    • MO fortran code

Boundary condition

input : low resolution climatology or analysis

  • option 1 : interpolation (and extrapolation) to rectangular boundaries
    • MO fortran code
    • SCRIP and MetOFFice IDL tool
  • option 2 :
    • NOC python BDY tools

Initial condition

input : low resolution climatolgy, analysis or restart

  • option 1 : interpolation of T, S and start from rest
  • option 2 : split restart and/or interpolation of T, S, U, V, SSH
    • MO Fortran code

Runoff

input : low resolution climatology (GRDC, or Dai and Trenberth)

  • option 1 : as surface flux, on nearest coastal point, large rivers spread over ocean points.
  • option 2 : as surface flux, spread on coastal points, large rivers spread over ocean masks.
    • MO Fortran code
  • option 3 : as surface flux, spread on coastal points, and as BDY large rivers.
    • MO Fortran code

Surface forcing
