Abstract for the simulations performed over 10 years (latest ones are the first presented):

  • for PHC_16? based on PHC_15 but :
    - apply -9% on precipitation & runoff instead of -8% in PHC_15 experiment
    
  • for PHC_15?: based on PHC_11 but :
    just use "good" input fields for K1 and M2 waves
    
  • for PHC_12 based on PHC_11 but :
    few tests to improve transport of few straits:
    - fmask = 4.0 at the output of the Baltic sea
    - fmask = 0.5 at Gibraltar
    - fmask = 1.0 at Bab El Mandeb & add an identical value at one corner of the strait
    - one specificity of the Sound strait is an annual mean output flow, so to catch it in outputs,
    few modifications have been done in the diafwb.F90 module. further more an error on the location
    of the Sound strait has been also corrected
    - 
    
  • for PHC_11: based on PHC_10 but includes both:
    it seems that input fields were not the good ones
    - global Kz tides 
    - increased Kz tides in the ITF area
    
  • for PHC_10?: based on PHC_9 but includes both:
    - 3 waves lenghts penetration (RGB) through the traqsr.F90 module 
    - ocean color: climatology of a 2D chlorophyll field
    
  • for PHC_9?: based on the PHC_8 experiment
    change the way to compute wind stress & wind module:
    - wind module is now read and corresponds to ||U||clim, i.e. the one computed using 6hourly components 
    not the one using climatological components Uclim/Vclim 
    - wind stress: (||U||.u)clim & (||U||.v)clim fields are directly read instead computed. the drag coefficient is the one 
    computed using on the wind module read just above.
    - in doing this we don't substract anymore relative velocity of the ocean/sea-ice in the computation of the wind module 
    and the wind stress
    
  • for PHC_4?: based on the PHC_3 experiment
    just remove the TKE penetration in setting nn_etau= 0 in namelist:
    
  • from PHC_1 to PHC_8 :
    all these runs have been used for:
    - freshwater budget adjustement in playing with new namelist parameters alpha_precip, alpha_runoff
    - Gibraltar, Bab El Mandeb & Sound sraits transports adjustement ( based on scale factors or/and bondary condition fmask )
    - they all used the following computation for the wind module:  we add the wind module variance difference 
    (||U||clim)^2 - (Uclim^2 + Vclim^2) to the computation of the wind module where ||U||clim is the climatological wind module 
    and Uclim/Vclim are the climatological wind component
