PHC_9 run

This run is based on the PHC_8 one except on the way the wind stress and module are managed.
Wind stress seems to be too low (in PHC_8) in high latitudes compared to what we have in using standard CLIO data
this component is capital for the water mass formation & penetration in these areas so it must be increased.

To do so, we do the following test:

compute off-line the daily climatology of the components
U.u and U.v using 6hourly wind velocities.
  • we use the wind module computed with the 6hourly wind velocities which is much more energetics than the one computed using climatological velocities.

Note that we don't substract the ocean/sea-ice velocities when computing the wind module since it is no more possible.
