Working Group, 2015 tasks

CONFIGMAN-1 Agree and test SIREN code

Some members of the working group have been contact to test Siren code. Unfortunately it seems they not found the time to test it, and we are still waiting their feedback.

However some Mercator Ocean user have try to use SIREN code. It seems that there is a need to improve readibility of the documentation. Moreover they ask for a tutorial or some examples.

Furthermore some bugs fix, and changes have been commited (others will come soon).

main changes:

  • add documentation
  • use mpp structure instead of file structure to read input
  • create one module for each interolation method
  • extrapolate all land points (_FillValue) + change on weight function
  • create math module
  • change dichotomy method to compute closest point on ORCA grid
  • improve way to find the offset between fine and coarse grid
  • allow to change unit of a variable (a scale factor could be applied)
  • new format in namelist to get information on additional request
  • new format for variable configuration file

main bugs fix:

  • use function to copy structure instead of overload assignment operator (to avoid memory leak)
  • boundary indices on velocity point
  • correct issue with "disorder" dimension
  • define local structure to avoid mistake with pointer when deleting embedded structure
  • reinitialise detect array for the interpolation of each level
  • wrong array size in intrerp linear
  • check value, before use scale factor and offset for restart dimg (case no0d…)
  • in extrap, force coef indice to 1, for dimension length equal to 1

CONFIGMAN-2 & 3 BDY configuration tool + Merge BDY configuration tool and SIREN

Following advices of the NEMO developpers comitee, concernong the BDY tool. we decided to use the NERC python tool instead of the CMCC Fortran tool. Indeed, the NERC tool seems already able to do more things.

Tests should have been done by CMCC on the NERC tool. Unfortunately there were still a few outstanding pieces to address, and we missed time to achieve all of it. So tests could not start.
