Branch : 2016/dev_r6711_SIMPLIF_6_aerobulk

WP2016 Action : SIMPLIF-6


Development branch related to Simplification / Enhancement of bulk formula in NEMO/OPA


Replacement of the current 3 bulk formula packages (sbcblk_core, sbcblk_clio, sbcblk_mfs) by a single generic package, aerobulk, developed by L. Brodeau.

The new package has a single interface (i.e. namelist namsbc_blk) that gives access to the three following bulk formula:

  • COARE algorithm version 3 (Fairall et al. 2003)
  • NCAR algorithm (Large & Yeager 2004, 2008) (the so-called CORE bulk formula)
  • ECMWF algorithm


  • CLIO bulk formula is removed from the system
  • CORE bulk formula is renamed NCAR bulk formulea
  • COARE and ECMWF are two newly introduced bulk formula in NEMO
  • ECMWF bulk are recommended bulk when using ERA input atmospheric data


STEP 1 :

Start from trunk at revision r6711 and from Laurent Brodeau' Aerobulk package adapted to NEMO.

svn co svn:// 

and simply follows the instruction given in "NEMOGCM_trunk/changes.txt" :

sbcblk_core => sbcblk

remove mfs and clio !

sbcmod: rm CLIO, MFS
     ln_blk_core => ln_blk
     jp_core => jp_blk
namsbc: remove ln_blk_clio and ln_blk_mfs, change ln_blk_core to ln_blk
namsbc_core => namsbc_blk


  • add 3 logical replacing the test : nn_components == jp_iam_nemo, jp_iam_opa, and jp_iam_sas (used in fldread.F90, sbccpl.F90, and sbcmod.F90), which declaration should be in abc_oce.F90
