This wiki relates to the ticket on NEMO reproducibility fails with land domains exclusion (#1704)

Author: Tomas Lovato

Institution: CMCC

Proposed actions, after the confirmation from other ST members:

  • revise the code and the log of mppini subroutines
  • evaluate the modified tool for offline mpp decomposition

Additional details not included in the ticket

I tried to use configuration 4 (ORCA2_LIM_PISCES) to test the reproducibility for a run with a total of 88 PEs (80 ocean+8 land) and one with only the ocean domains (80 PEs). Here below a diff file of changes used in the test.

The test for reproducibility failed.

I made the following change in the mppini_2.h subroutine to modify the exclusion criteria, which now consider a domain as land when all points within the region (inner+overlap) are zero (I also modified the offline decomposition tool accordingly):

isurf = 0
- DO jj = 1+jprecj, ilj-jprecj
- DO ji = 1+jpreci, ili-jpreci
+ DO jj = 1, ilj
+ DO ji = 1, ili
IF( imask(ji+iimppt(ii,ij)-1, jj+ijmppt(ii,ij)-1) == 1)
isurf = isurf+1
END DO
END DO

After these modifications, I rerun SETTE using the configuration 4 test always using 88 PEs, but this time the decomposition was 81 ocean + 7 land. The reproducibility test passed.
