12 | Using the representation described in \autoref{chap:DOM}, |
---|
13 | several semi-discrete space forms of the dynamical equations are available depending on |
---|
14 | the vertical coordinate used and on the conservation properties of the vorticity term. |
---|
15 | In all the equations presented here, the masking has been omitted for simplicity. |
---|
16 | One must be aware that all the quantities are masked fields and |
---|
17 | that each time an average or difference operator is used, the resulting field is multiplied by a mask. |
---|
18 | |
---|
19 | The prognostic ocean dynamics equation can be summarized as follows: |
---|
20 | \[ |
---|
21 | \text{NXT} = \dbinom {\text{VOR} + \text{KEG} + \text {ZAD} } |
---|
22 | {\text{COR} + \text{ADV} } |
---|
23 | + \text{HPG} + \text{SPG} + \text{LDF} + \text{ZDF} |
---|
24 | \] |
---|
25 | NXT stands for next, referring to the time-stepping. |
---|
26 | The first group of terms on the rhs of this equation corresponds to the Coriolis and advection terms that |
---|
27 | are decomposed into either a vorticity part (VOR), a kinetic energy part (KEG) and |
---|
28 | a vertical advection part (ZAD) in the vector invariant formulation, |
---|
29 | or a Coriolis and advection part (COR+ADV) in the flux formulation. |
---|
30 | The terms following these are the pressure gradient contributions |
---|
31 | (HPG, Hydrostatic Pressure Gradient, and SPG, Surface Pressure Gradient); |
---|
32 | and contributions from lateral diffusion (LDF) and vertical diffusion (ZDF), |
---|
33 | which are added to the rhs in the \mdl{dynldf} and \mdl{dynzdf} modules. |
---|
34 | The vertical diffusion term includes the surface and bottom stresses. |
---|
35 | The external forcings and parameterisations require complex inputs |
---|
36 | (surface wind stress calculation using bulk formulae, estimation of mixing coefficients) |
---|
37 | that are carried out in modules SBC, LDF and ZDF and are described in |
---|
38 | \autoref{chap:SBC}, \autoref{chap:LDF} and \autoref{chap:ZDF}, respectively. |
---|
39 | |
---|
40 | In the present chapter we also describe the diagnostic equations used to compute the horizontal divergence, |
---|
41 | curl of the velocities (\emph{divcur} module) and the vertical velocity (\emph{wzvmod} module). |
---|
42 | |
---|
43 | The different options available to the user are managed by namelist variables. |
---|
44 | For term \textit{ttt} in the momentum equations, the logical namelist variables are \textit{ln\_dynttt\_xxx}, |
---|
45 | where \textit{xxx} is a 3 or 4 letter acronym corresponding to each optional scheme. |
---|
46 | %If a CPP key is used for this term its name is \key{ttt}. |
---|
47 | The corresponding code can be found in the \textit{dynttt\_xxx} module in the DYN directory, |
---|
48 | and it is usually computed in the \textit{dyn\_ttt\_xxx} subroutine. |
---|
49 | |
---|
50 | The user has the option of extracting and outputting each tendency term from the 3D momentum equations |
---|
51 | (\texttt{trddyn?} defined), as described in \autoref{chap:MISC}. |
---|
52 | Furthermore, the tendency terms associated with the 2D barotropic vorticity balance (when \texttt{trdvor?} is defined) |
---|
53 | can be derived from the 3D terms. |
---|

---|
68 | \label{subsec:DYN_divcur} |
---|
69 | |
---|
70 | The vorticity is defined at an $f$-point (\ie\ corner point) as follows: |
---|
71 | \begin{equation} |
---|
72 | \label{eq:DYN_divcur_cur} |
---|
73 | \zeta =\frac{1}{e_{1f}\,e_{2f} }\left( {\;\delta_{i+1/2} \left[ {e_{2v}\;v} \right] |
---|
74 | -\delta_{j+1/2} \left[ {e_{1u}\;u} \right]\;} \right) |
---|
75 | \end{equation} |
---|
76 | |
---|
77 | The horizontal divergence is defined at a $T$-point. |
---|
78 | It is given by: |
---|
79 | \[ |
---|
80 | % \label{eq:DYN_divcur_div} |
---|
81 | \chi =\frac{1}{e_{1t}\,e_{2t}\,e_{3t} } |
---|
82 | \left( {\delta_i \left[ {e_{2u}\,e_{3u}\,u} \right] |
---|
83 | +\delta_j \left[ {e_{1v}\,e_{3v}\,v} \right]} \right) |
---|
84 | \] |
---|
85 | |
---|
86 | Note that although the vorticity has the same discrete expression in $z$- and $s$-coordinates, |
---|
87 | its physical meaning is not identical. |
---|
88 | $\zeta$ is a pseudo vorticity along $s$-surfaces |
---|
89 | (only pseudo because $(u,v)$ are still defined along geopotential surfaces, |
---|
90 | but are not necessarily defined at the same depth). |
---|
91 | |
---|
92 | The vorticity and divergence at the \textit{before} step are used in the computation of |
---|
93 | the horizontal diffusion of momentum. |
---|
94 | Note that because they have been calculated prior to the Asselin filtering of the \textit{before} velocities, |
---|
95 | the \textit{before} vorticity and divergence arrays must be included in the restart file to |
---|
96 | ensure perfect restartability. |
---|
97 | The vorticity and divergence at the \textit{now} time step are used for the computation of |
---|
98 | the nonlinear advection and of the vertical velocity respectively. |

104 | \label{subsec:DYN_sshwzv} |
---|
105 | |
---|
106 | The sea surface height is given by: |
---|
107 | \begin{equation} |
---|
108 | \label{eq:DYN_spg_ssh} |
---|
109 | \begin{aligned} |
---|
110 | \frac{\partial \eta }{\partial t} |
---|
111 | &\equiv \frac{1}{e_{1t} e_{2t} }\sum\limits_k { \left\{ \delta_i \left[ {e_{2u}\,e_{3u}\;u} \right] |
---|
112 | +\delta_j \left[ {e_{1v}\,e_{3v}\;v} \right] \right\} } |
---|
113 | - \frac{\textit{emp}}{\rho_w } \\ |
---|
114 | &\equiv \sum\limits_k {\chi \ e_{3t}} - \frac{\textit{emp}}{\rho_w } |
---|
115 | \end{aligned} |
---|
116 | \end{equation} |
---|
117 | where \textit{emp} is the surface freshwater budget (evaporation minus precipitation), |
---|
118 | expressed in Kg/m$^2$/s (which is equal to mm/s), |
---|
119 | and $\rho_w$=1,035~Kg/m$^3$ is the reference density of sea water (Boussinesq approximation). |
---|
120 | If river runoff is expressed as a surface freshwater flux (see \autoref{chap:SBC}) then |
---|
121 | \textit{emp} can be written as the evaporation minus precipitation, minus the river runoff. |
---|
122 | The sea-surface height is evaluated using exactly the same time stepping scheme as |
---|
123 | the tracer equation \autoref{eq:TRA_nxt}: |
---|
124 | a leapfrog scheme in combination with an Asselin time filter, |
---|
125 | \ie\ the velocity appearing in \autoref{eq:DYN_spg_ssh} is centred in time (\textit{now} velocity). |
---|
126 | This is of paramount importance. |
---|
127 | Replacing $T$ by the number $1$ in the tracer equation and summing over the water column must lead to |
---|
128 | the sea surface height equation otherwise tracer content will not be conserved |
---|
129 | \citep{griffies.pacanowski.ea_MWR01, leclair.madec_OM09}. |
---|
130 | |
---|
131 | The vertical velocity is computed by an upward integration of the horizontal divergence starting at the bottom, |
---|
132 | taking into account the change of the thickness of the levels: |
---|
133 | \begin{equation} |
---|
134 | \label{eq:DYN_wzv} |
---|
135 | \left\{ |
---|
136 | \begin{aligned} |
---|
137 | &\left. w \right|_{k_b-1/2} \quad= 0 \qquad \text{where } k_b \text{ is the level just above the sea floor } \\ |
---|
138 | &\left. w \right|_{k+1/2} = \left. w \right|_{k-1/2} + \left. e_{3t} \right|_{k}\; \left. \chi \right|_k |
---|
139 | - \frac{1} {2 \rdt} \left( \left. e_{3t}^{t+1}\right|_{k} - \left. e_{3t}^{t-1}\right|_{k}\right) |
---|
140 | \end{aligned} |
---|
141 | \right. |
---|
142 | \end{equation} |
---|
143 | |
---|
144 | In the case of a non-linear free surface (\texttt{vvl?}), the top vertical velocity is $-\textit{emp}/\rho_w$, |
---|
145 | as changes in the divergence of the barotropic transport are absorbed into the change of the level thicknesses, |
---|
146 | re-orientated downward. |
---|
147 | \gmcomment{not sure of this... to be modified with the change in emp setting} |
---|
148 | In the case of a linear free surface, the time derivative in \autoref{eq:DYN_wzv} disappears. |
---|
149 | The upper boundary condition applies at a fixed level $z=0$. |
---|
150 | The top vertical velocity is thus equal to the divergence of the barotropic transport |
---|
151 | (\ie\ the first term in the right-hand-side of \autoref{eq:DYN_spg_ssh}). |
---|
152 | |
---|
153 | Note also that whereas the vertical velocity has the same discrete expression in $z$- and $s$-coordinates, |
---|
154 | its physical meaning is not the same: |
---|
155 | in the second case, $w$ is the velocity normal to the $s$-surfaces. |
---|
156 | Note also that the $k$-axis is re-orientated downwards in the \fortran\ code compared to |
---|
157 | the indexing used in the semi-discrete equations such as \autoref{eq:DYN_wzv} |
---|
158 | (see \autoref{subsec:DOM_Num_Index_vertical}). |

199 | Four discretisations of the vorticity term (\texttt{ln\_dynvor\_xxx}\forcode{=.true.}) are available: |
---|
200 | conserving potential enstrophy of horizontally non-divergent flow (ENS scheme); |
---|
201 | conserving horizontal kinetic energy (ENE scheme); |

202 | conserving potential enstrophy for the relative vorticity term and |

203 | horizontal kinetic energy for the planetary vorticity term (MIX scheme); |

204 | or conserving both the potential enstrophy of horizontally non-divergent flow and horizontal kinetic energy |
---|
205 | (EEN scheme) (see \autoref{subsec:INVARIANTS_vorEEN}). |
---|
206 | In the case of ENS, ENE or MIX schemes the land sea mask may be slightly modified to ensure the consistency of |

207 | vorticity term with analytical equations (\np{ln\_dynvor\_con}\forcode{=.true.}). |

218 | ($ [ (\zeta +f ) / e_{3f} ]^2 $ in $s$-coordinates) for a horizontally non-divergent flow (\ie\ $\chi$=$0$), |

---|
283 | |
---|
284 | In both the ENS and ENE schemes, |
---|
285 | it is apparent that the combination of $i$ and $j$ averages of the velocity allows for |
---|
286 | the presence of grid point oscillation structures that will be invisible to the operator. |
---|
287 | These structures are \textit{computational modes} that will be at least partly damped by |
---|
288 | the momentum diffusion operator (\ie\ the subgrid-scale advection), but not by the resolved advection term. |
---|
289 | The ENS and ENE schemes therefore do not contribute to dump any grid point noise in the horizontal velocity field. |
---|
290 | Such noise would result in more noise in the vertical velocity field, an undesirable feature. |
---|
291 | This is a well-known characteristic of $C$-grid discretization where |
---|
292 | $u$ and $v$ are located at different grid points, |
---|
293 | a price worth paying to avoid a double averaging in the pressure gradient term as in the $B$-grid. |
---|
294 | \gmcomment{ To circumvent this, Adcroft (ADD REF HERE) |
---|
295 | Nevertheless, this technique strongly distort the phase and group velocity of Rossby waves....} |
---|
296 | |
---|
297 | A very nice solution to the problem of double averaging was proposed by \citet{arakawa.hsu_MWR90}. |
---|
298 | The idea is to get rid of the double averaging by considering triad combinations of vorticity. |
---|
299 | It is noteworthy that this solution is conceptually quite similar to the one proposed by |
---|
300 | \citep{griffies.gnanadesikan.ea_JPO98} for the discretization of the iso-neutral diffusion operator (see \autoref{apdx:INVARIANTS}). |
---|
301 | |
---|
302 | The \citet{arakawa.hsu_MWR90} vorticity advection scheme for a single layer is modified |
---|
303 | for spherical coordinates as described by \citet{arakawa.lamb_MWR81} to obtain the EEN scheme. |
---|
304 | First consider the discrete expression of the potential vorticity, $q$, defined at an $f$-point: |
---|
305 | \[ |
---|
306 | % \label{eq:DYN_pot_vor} |
---|
307 | q = \frac{\zeta +f} {e_{3f} } |
---|
308 | \] |
---|
309 | where the relative vorticity is defined by (\autoref{eq:DYN_divcur_cur}), |
---|
310 | the Coriolis parameter is given by $f=2 \,\Omega \;\sin \varphi _f $ and the layer thickness at $f$-points is: |
---|
311 | \begin{equation} |
---|
312 | \label{eq:DYN_een_e3f} |
---|
313 | e_{3f} = \overline{\overline {e_{3t} }} ^{\,i+1/2,j+1/2} |

327 | A key point in \autoref{eq:DYN_een_e3f} is how the averaging in the \textbf{i}- and \textbf{j}- directions is made. |
---|
328 | It uses the sum of masked t-point vertical scale factor divided either by the sum of the four t-point masks |
---|
329 | (\np{nn\_een\_e3f}\forcode{=1}), or just by $4$ (\np{nn\_een\_e3f}\forcode{=.true.}). |
---|
330 | The latter case preserves the continuity of $e_{3f}$ when one or more of the neighbouring $e_{3t}$ tends to zero and |
---|
331 | extends by continuity the value of $e_{3f}$ into the land areas. |
---|
332 | This case introduces a sub-grid-scale topography at f-points |
---|
333 | (with a systematic reduction of $e_{3f}$ when a model level intercept the bathymetry) |
---|
334 | that tends to reinforce the topostrophy of the flow |
---|
335 | (\ie\ the tendency of the flow to follow the isobaths) \citep{penduff.le-sommer.ea_OS07}. |
---|
336 | |
---|
337 | Next, the vorticity triads, $ {^i_j}\mathbb{Q}^{i_p}_{j_p}$ can be defined at a $T$-point as |
---|
338 | the following triad combinations of the neighbouring potential vorticities defined at f-points |
---|
339 | (\autoref{fig:DYN_een_triad}): |
---|
340 | \begin{equation} |
---|
341 | \label{eq:DYN_Q_triads} |
---|
342 | _i^j \mathbb{Q}^{i_p}_{j_p} |
---|
343 | = \frac{1}{12} \ \left( q^{i-i_p}_{j+j_p} + q^{i+j_p}_{j+i_p} + q^{i+i_p}_{j-j_p} \right) |
---|
344 | \end{equation} |
---|
345 | where the indices $i_p$ and $k_p$ take the values: $i_p = -1/2$ or $1/2$ and $j_p = -1/2$ or $1/2$. |
---|
346 | |
---|
347 | Finally, the vorticity terms are represented as: |
---|
348 | \begin{equation} |
---|
349 | \label{eq:DYN_vor_een} |
---|
350 | \left\{ { |
---|
351 | \begin{aligned} |
---|
352 | +q\,e_3 \, v &\equiv +\frac{1}{e_{1u} } \sum_{\substack{i_p,\,k_p}} |
---|
353 | {^{i+1/2-i_p}_j} \mathbb{Q}^{i_p}_{j_p} \left( e_{1v}\,e_{3v} \;v \right)^{i+1/2-i_p}_{j+j_p} \\ |
---|
354 | - q\,e_3 \, u &\equiv -\frac{1}{e_{2v} } \sum_{\substack{i_p,\,k_p}} |
---|
355 | {^i_{j+1/2-j_p}} \mathbb{Q}^{i_p}_{j_p} \left( e_{2u}\,e_{3u} \;u \right)^{i+i_p}_{j+1/2-j_p} \\ |
---|
356 | \end{aligned} |
---|
357 | } \right. |
---|
358 | \end{equation} |
---|
359 | |
---|
360 | This EEN scheme in fact combines the conservation properties of the ENS and ENE schemes. |
---|
361 | It conserves both total energy and potential enstrophy in the limit of horizontally nondivergent flow |
---|
362 | (\ie\ $\chi$=$0$) (see \autoref{subsec:INVARIANTS_vorEEN}). |
---|
363 | Applied to a realistic ocean configuration, it has been shown that it leads to a significant reduction of |
---|
364 | the noise in the vertical velocity field \citep{le-sommer.penduff.ea_OM09}. |
---|
365 | Furthermore, used in combination with a partial steps representation of bottom topography, |
---|
366 | it improves the interaction between current and topography, |
---|
367 | leading to a larger topostrophy of the flow \citep{barnier.madec.ea_OD06, penduff.le-sommer.ea_OS07}. |

440 | In flux form, the vorticity term reduces to a Coriolis term in which the Coriolis parameter has been modified to account for the "metric" term. |

441 | This altered Coriolis parameter is thus discretised at $f$-points. |

492 | \label{subsec:DYN_adv_cen2} |

493 | |
---|
494 | In the centered $2^{nd}$ order formulation, the velocity is evaluated as the mean of the two neighbouring points: |
---|
495 | \begin{equation} |
---|
496 | \label{eq:DYN_adv_cen2} |
---|
497 | \left\{ |

498 | \begin{aligned} |

---|
504 | |
---|
505 | The scheme is non diffusive (\ie\ conserves the kinetic energy) but dispersive (\ie\ it may create false extrema). |
---|
506 | It is therefore notoriously noisy and must be used in conjunction with an explicit diffusion operator to |
---|
507 | produce a sensible solution. |
---|
508 | The associated time-stepping is performed using a leapfrog scheme in conjunction with an Asselin time-filter, |

515 | \label{subsec:DYN_adv_ubs} |
---|
516 | |
---|
517 | The UBS advection scheme is an upstream biased third order scheme based on |
---|
518 | an upstream-biased parabolic interpolation. |
---|
519 | For example, the evaluation of $u_T^{ubs} $ is done as follows: |
---|
520 | \begin{equation} |
---|
521 | \label{eq:DYN_adv_ubs} |
---|
522 | u_T^{ubs} =\overline u ^i-\;\frac{1}{6} |
---|
523 | \begin{cases} |
---|
524 | u"_{i-1/2}& \text{if $\ \overline{e_{2u}\,e_{3u} \ u}^i \geqslant 0$ } \\ |
---|
525 | u"_{i+1/2}& \text{if $\ \overline{e_{2u}\,e_{3u} \ u}^i < 0$ } |
---|
526 | \end{cases} |
---|
527 | \end{equation} |
---|
528 | where $u"_{i+1/2} =\delta_{i+1/2} \left[ {\delta_i \left[ u \right]} \right]$. |
---|
529 | This results in a dissipatively dominant (\ie\ hyper-diffusive) truncation error |
---|
530 | \citep{shchepetkin.mcwilliams_OM05}. |
---|
531 | The overall performance of the advection scheme is similar to that reported in \citet{farrow.stevens_JPO95}. |
---|
532 | It is a relatively good compromise between accuracy and smoothness. |
---|
533 | It is not a \emph{positive} scheme, meaning that false extrema are permitted. |
---|
534 | But the amplitudes of the false extrema are significantly reduced over those in the centred second order method. |
---|
535 | As the scheme already includes a diffusion component, it can be used without explicit lateral diffusion on momentum |
---|
536 | (\ie\ \np{ln\_dynldf\_lap}\forcode{=}\np{ln\_dynldf\_bilap}\forcode{=.false.}), |
---|
537 | and it is recommended to do so. |
---|
538 | |
---|
539 | The UBS scheme is not used in all directions. |
---|
540 | In the vertical, the centred $2^{nd}$ order evaluation of the advection is preferred, \ie\ $u_{uw}^{ubs}$ and |
---|
541 | $u_{vw}^{ubs}$ in \autoref{eq:DYN_adv_cen2} are used. |
---|
542 | UBS is diffusive and is associated with vertical mixing of momentum. \gmcomment{ gm pursue the |
---|
543 | sentence:Since vertical mixing of momentum is a source term of the TKE equation... } |
---|
544 | |
---|
545 | For stability reasons, the first term in (\autoref{eq:DYN_adv_ubs}), |
---|
546 | which corresponds to a second order centred scheme, is evaluated using the \textit{now} velocity (centred in time), |
---|
547 | while the second term, which is the diffusion part of the scheme, |
---|
548 | is evaluated using the \textit{before} velocity (forward in time). |
---|
549 | This is discussed by \citet{webb.de-cuevas.ea_JAOT98} in the context of the Quick advection scheme. |
---|
550 | |
---|
551 | Note that the UBS and QUICK (Quadratic Upstream Interpolation for Convective Kinematics) schemes only differ by |
---|
552 | one coefficient. |
---|
553 | Replacing $1/6$ by $1/8$ in (\autoref{eq:DYN_adv_ubs}) leads to the QUICK advection scheme \citep{webb.de-cuevas.ea_JAOT98}. |
---|
554 | This option is not available through a namelist parameter, since the $1/6$ coefficient is hard coded. |
---|
555 | Nevertheless it is quite easy to make the substitution in the \mdl{dynadv\_ubs} module and obtain a QUICK scheme. |
---|
556 | |
---|
557 | Note also that in the current version of \mdl{dynadv\_ubs}, |
---|
558 | there is also the possibility of using a $4^{th}$ order evaluation of the advective velocity as in ROMS. |
---|
559 | This is an error and should be suppressed soon. |

579 | The key distinction between the different algorithms used for |

581 | since HPG is a \emph{horizontal} pressure gradient, \ie\ computed along geopotential surfaces. |

582 | As a result, any tilt of the surface of the computational levels will require a specific treatment to |

583 | compute the hydrostatic pressure gradient. |

584 | |

585 | The hydrostatic pressure gradient term is evaluated either using a leapfrog scheme, |

587 | or a semi-implcit scheme. |

596 | The hydrostatic pressure can be obtained by integrating the hydrostatic equation vertically from the surface. |

597 | However, the pressure is large at great depth while its horizontal gradient is several orders of magnitude smaller. |

641 | With partial bottom cells, tracers in horizontally adjacent cells generally live at different depths. |
---|
642 | Before taking horizontal gradients between these tracer points, |
---|
643 | a linear interpolation is used to approximate the deeper tracer as if |
---|
644 | it actually lived at the depth of the shallower tracer point. |
---|
645 | |
---|
646 | Apart from this modification, |
---|
647 | the horizontal hydrostatic pressure gradient evaluated in the $z$-coordinate with partial step is exactly as in |
---|
648 | the pure $z$-coordinate case. |
---|
649 | As explained in detail in section \autoref{sec:TRA_zpshde}, |
---|
650 | the nonlinearity of pressure effects in the equation of state is such that |
---|
651 | it is better to interpolate temperature and salinity vertically before computing the density. |
---|
652 | Horizontal gradients of temperature and salinity are needed for the TRA modules, |
---|
653 | which is the reason why the horizontal gradients of density at the deepest model level are computed in |

654 | module \mdl{zpsdhe} located in the TRA directory and described in \autoref{sec:TRA_zpshde}. |

692 | |
---|
693 | Note that expression \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_sco} is commonly used when the variable volume formulation is activated |
---|
694 | (\texttt{vvl?}) because in that case, even with a flat bottom, |

695 | the coordinate surfaces are not horizontal but follow the free surface \citep{levier.treguier.ea_rpt07}. |

696 | The pressure jacobian scheme (\np{ln\_dynhpg\_prj}\forcode{=.true.}) is available as |

697 | an improved option to \np{ln\_dynhpg\_sco}\forcode{=.true.} when \texttt{vvl?} is active. |

706 | \label{subsec:DYN_hpg_isf} |

707 | |

708 | Beneath an ice shelf, the total pressure gradient is the sum of the pressure gradient due to the ice shelf load and |

709 | the pressure gradient due to the ocean load (\np{ln\_dynhpg\_isf}\forcode{=.true.}).\\ |
---|
710 | |
---|
711 | The main hypothesis to compute the ice shelf load is that the ice shelf is in an isostatic equilibrium. |
---|
712 | The top pressure is computed integrating from surface to the base of the ice shelf a reference density profile |
---|
713 | (prescribed as density of a water at 34.4 PSU and -1.9\deg{C}) and |
---|
714 | corresponds to the water replaced by the ice shelf. |
---|
715 | This top pressure is constant over time. |
---|
716 | A detailed description of this method is described in \citet{losch_JGR08}.\\ |
---|
717 | |

---|
725 | \label{subsec:DYN_hpg_imp} |
---|
726 | |
---|
727 | The default time differencing scheme used for the horizontal pressure gradient is a leapfrog scheme and |
---|
728 | therefore the density used in all discrete expressions given above is the \textit{now} density, |
---|
729 | computed from the \textit{now} temperature and salinity. |
---|
730 | In some specific cases |
---|
731 | (usually high resolution simulations over an ocean domain which includes weakly stratified regions) |
---|
732 | the physical phenomenon that controls the time-step is internal gravity waves (IGWs). |
---|
733 | A semi-implicit scheme for doubling the stability limit associated with IGWs can be used |
---|
734 | \citep{brown.campana_MWR78, maltrud.smith.ea_JGR98}. |
---|
735 | It involves the evaluation of the hydrostatic pressure gradient as |
---|
736 | an average over the three time levels $t-\rdt$, $t$, and $t+\rdt$ |
---|
737 | (\ie\ \textit{before}, \textit{now} and \textit{after} time-steps), |
---|
738 | rather than at the central time level $t$ only, as in the standard leapfrog scheme. |
---|
739 | |
---|
740 | $\bullet$ leapfrog scheme (\np{ln\_dynhpg\_imp}\forcode{=.true.}): |
---|
741 | |
---|
742 | \begin{equation} |
---|
743 | \label{eq:DYN_hpg_lf} |
---|
744 | \frac{u^{t+\rdt}-u^{t-\rdt}}{2\rdt} = \;\cdots \; |
---|
745 | -\frac{1}{\rho_o \,e_{1u} }\delta_{i+1/2} \left[ {p_h^t } \right] |
---|
746 | \end{equation} |
---|
747 | |
---|
748 | $\bullet$ semi-implicit scheme (\np{ln\_dynhpg\_imp}\forcode{=.true.}): |
---|
749 | \begin{equation} |
---|
750 | \label{eq:DYN_hpg_imp} |
---|
751 | \frac{u^{t+\rdt}-u^{t-\rdt}}{2\rdt} = \;\cdots \; |
---|
752 | -\frac{1}{4\,\rho_o \,e_{1u} } \delta_{i+1/2} \left[ p_h^{t+\rdt} +2\,p_h^t +p_h^{t-\rdt} \right] |
---|
753 | \end{equation} |
---|
754 | |
---|
755 | The semi-implicit time scheme \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_imp} is made possible without |
---|
756 | significant additional computation since the density can be updated to time level $t+\rdt$ before |
---|
757 | computing the horizontal hydrostatic pressure gradient. |
---|
758 | It can be easily shown that the stability limit associated with the hydrostatic pressure gradient doubles using |
---|
759 | \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_imp} compared to that using the standard leapfrog scheme \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_lf}. |
---|
760 | Note that \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_imp} is equivalent to applying a time filter to the pressure gradient to |
---|
761 | eliminate high frequency IGWs. |
---|
762 | Obviously, when using \autoref{eq:DYN_hpg_imp}, |
---|
763 | the doubling of the time-step is achievable only if no other factors control the time-step, |
---|
764 | such as the stability limits associated with advection or diffusion. |
---|
765 | |
---|
766 | In practice, the semi-implicit scheme is used when \np{ln\_dynhpg\_imp}\forcode{=.true.}. |
---|
767 | In this case, we choose to apply the time filter to temperature and salinity used in the equation of state, |
---|
768 | instead of applying it to the hydrostatic pressure or to the density, |
---|
769 | so that no additional storage array has to be defined. |
---|
770 | The density used to compute the hydrostatic pressure gradient (whatever the formulation) is evaluated as follows: |
---|
771 | \[ |
---|
772 | % \label{eq:DYN_rho_flt} |
---|
773 | \rho^t = \rho( \widetilde{T},\widetilde {S},z_t) |
---|
774 | \quad \text{with} \quad |
---|
775 | \widetilde{X} = 1 / 4 \left( X^{t+\rdt} +2 \,X^t + X^{t-\rdt} \right) |
---|
776 | \] |
---|
777 | |
---|
778 | Note that in the semi-implicit case, it is necessary to save the filtered density, |
---|
779 | an extra three-dimensional field, in the restart file to restart the model with exact reproducibility. |
---|
780 | This option is controlled by \np{nn\_dynhpg\_rst}, a namelist parameter. |

---|
797 | The surface pressure gradient term is related to the representation of the free surface (\autoref{sec:MB_hor_pg}). |
---|
798 | The main distinction is between the fixed volume case (linear free surface) and |
---|
799 | the variable volume case (nonlinear free surface, \texttt{vvl?} is defined). |
---|
800 | In the linear free surface case (\autoref{subsec:MB_free_surface}) |
---|
801 | the vertical scale factors $e_{3}$ are fixed in time, |
---|
802 | while they are time-dependent in the nonlinear case (\autoref{subsec:MB_free_surface}). |
---|
803 | With both linear and nonlinear free surface, external gravity waves are allowed in the equations, |
---|
804 | which imposes a very small time step when an explicit time stepping is used. |
---|
805 | Two methods are proposed to allow a longer time step for the three-dimensional equations: |
---|
806 | the filtered free surface, which is a modification of the continuous equations (see \autoref{eq:MB_flt?}), |
---|
807 | and the split-explicit free surface described below. |
---|
808 | The extra term introduced in the filtered method is calculated implicitly, |
---|
809 | so that the update of the next velocities is done in module \mdl{dynspg\_flt} and not in \mdl{dynnxt}. |
---|
810 | |
---|
811 | |
---|
812 | The form of the surface pressure gradient term depends on how the user wants to |
---|
813 | handle the fast external gravity waves that are a solution of the analytical equation (\autoref{sec:MB_hor_pg}). |
---|
814 | Three formulations are available, all controlled by a CPP key (ln\_dynspg\_xxx): |
---|
815 | an explicit formulation which requires a small time step; |
---|
816 | a filtered free surface formulation which allows a larger time step by |
---|
817 | adding a filtering term into the momentum equation; |
---|
818 | and a split-explicit free surface formulation, described below, which also allows a larger time step. |
---|
819 | |
---|
820 | The extra term introduced in the filtered method is calculated implicitly, so that a solver is used to compute it. |
---|
821 | As a consequence the update of the $next$ velocities is done in module \mdl{dynspg\_flt} and not in \mdl{dynnxt}. |

---|
829 | |
---|
830 | In the explicit free surface formulation (\np{ln\_dynspg\_exp} set to true), |
---|
831 | the model time step is chosen to be small enough to resolve the external gravity waves |
---|
832 | (typically a few tens of seconds). |
---|
833 | The surface pressure gradient, evaluated using a leap-frog scheme (\ie\ centered in time), |
---|
834 | is thus simply given by : |
---|
835 | \begin{equation} |
---|
836 | \label{eq:DYN_spg_exp} |
---|
837 | \left\{ |
---|
838 | \begin{aligned} |

---|

---|
842 | \right. |
---|
843 | \end{equation} |
---|
844 | |
---|
845 | Note that in the non-linear free surface case (\ie\ \texttt{vvl?} defined), |
---|
846 | the surface pressure gradient is already included in the momentum tendency through |
---|
847 | the level thickness variation allowed in the computation of the hydrostatic pressure gradient. |

860 | The split-explicit free surface formulation used in \NEMO\ (\np{ln\_dynspg\_ts} set to true), |
---|
861 | also called the time-splitting formulation, follows the one proposed by \citet{shchepetkin.mcwilliams_OM05}. |
---|
862 | The general idea is to solve the free surface equation and the associated barotropic velocity equations with |
---|
863 | a smaller time step than $\rdt$, the time step used for the three dimensional prognostic variables |
---|
864 | (\autoref{fig:DYN_spg_ts}). |
---|
865 | The size of the small time step, $\rdt_e$ (the external mode or barotropic time step) is provided through |
---|
866 | the \np{nn\_baro} namelist parameter as: $\rdt_e = \rdt / nn\_baro$. |
---|
867 | This parameter can be optionally defined automatically (\np{ln\_bt\_nn\_auto}\forcode{=.true.}) considering that |
---|
868 | the stability of the barotropic system is essentially controled by external waves propagation. |
---|
869 | Maximum Courant number is in that case time independent, and easily computed online from the input bathymetry. |
---|
870 | Therefore, $\rdt_e$ is adjusted so that the Maximum allowed Courant number is smaller than \np{rn\_bt\_cmax}. |
---|

924 | In the default case (\np{ln\_bt\_fw}\forcode{=.true.}), |
---|
925 | the external mode is integrated between \textit{now} and \textit{after} baroclinic time-steps |
---|
926 | (\autoref{fig:DYN_spg_ts}a). |
---|
927 | To avoid aliasing of fast barotropic motions into three dimensional equations, |
---|
928 | time filtering is eventually applied on barotropic quantities (\np{ln\_bt\_av}\forcode{=.true.}). |
---|
929 | In that case, the integration is extended slightly beyond \textit{after} time step to |
---|
930 | provide time filtered quantities. |
---|
931 | These are used for the subsequent initialization of the barotropic mode in the following baroclinic step. |
---|
932 | Since external mode equations written at baroclinic time steps finally follow a forward time stepping scheme, |
---|
933 | asselin filtering is not applied to barotropic quantities.\\ |
---|
934 | Alternatively, one can choose to integrate barotropic equations starting from \textit{before} time step |
---|
935 | (\np{ln\_bt\_fw}\forcode{=.false.}). |
---|
936 | Although more computationaly expensive ( \np{nn\_baro} additional iterations are indeed necessary), |
---|
937 | the baroclinic to barotropic forcing term given at \textit{now} time step become centred in |
---|
938 | the middle of the integration window. |
---|
939 | It can easily be shown that this property removes part of splitting errors between modes, |
---|
940 | which increases the overall numerical robustness. |

945 | As far as tracer conservation is concerned, |
---|
946 | barotropic velocities used to advect tracers must also be updated at \textit{now} time step. |
---|
947 | This implies to change the traditional order of computations in \NEMO: |
---|
948 | most of momentum trends (including the barotropic mode calculation) updated first, tracers' after. |
---|
949 | This \textit{de facto} makes semi-implicit hydrostatic pressure gradient |
---|
950 | (see section \autoref{subsec:DYN_hpg_imp}) |
---|
951 | and time splitting not compatible. |
---|
952 | Advective barotropic velocities are obtained by using a secondary set of filtering weights, |
---|
953 | uniquely defined from the filter coefficients used for the time averaging (\citet{shchepetkin.mcwilliams_OM05}). |
---|
954 | Consistency between the time averaged continuity equation and the time stepping of tracers is here the key to |

955 | obtain exact conservation. |

959 | One can eventually choose to feedback instantaneous values by not using any time filter |
---|
960 | (\np{ln\_bt\_av}\forcode{=.false.}). |
---|
961 | In that case, external mode equations are continuous in time, |
---|
962 | \ie\ they are not re-initialized when starting a new sub-stepping sequence. |
---|
963 | This is the method used so far in the POM model, the stability being maintained by |
---|
964 | refreshing at (almost) each barotropic time step advection and horizontal diffusion terms. |
---|
965 | Since the latter terms have not been added in \NEMO\ for computational efficiency, |
---|
966 | removing time filtering is not recommended except for debugging purposes. |
---|
967 | This may be used for instance to appreciate the damping effect of the standard formulation on |
---|
968 | external gravity waves in idealized or weakly non-linear cases. |
---|
969 | Although the damping is lower than for the filtered free surface, |

976 | |
---|
977 | Assume knowledge of the full velocity and tracer fields at baroclinic time $\tau$. |
---|
978 | Hence, we can update the surface height and vertically integrated velocity with a leap-frog scheme using |
---|
979 | the small barotropic time step $\rdt$. |
---|
980 | We have |
---|
981 | |
---|
982 | \[ |

983 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_eta} |
---|
984 | \eta^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n+1}) - \eta^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n+1}) (\tau,t_{n-1}) |
---|
985 | = 2 \rdt \left[-\nabla \cdot \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_n) + \text{EMP}_w(\tau) \right] |
---|
986 | \] |

987 | \begin{multline*} |

989 | \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n+1}) - \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n-1}) \\ |
---|
990 | = 2\rdt \left[ - f \textbf{k} \times \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n}) |
---|
991 | - H(\tau) \nabla p_s^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n}) +\textbf{M}(\tau) \right] |

992 | \end{multline*} |
---|
993 | \ |
---|
994 | |
---|
995 | In these equations, araised (b) denotes values of surface height and vertically integrated velocity updated with |
---|
996 | the barotropic time steps. |
---|
997 | The $\tau$ time label on $\eta^{(b)}$ and $U^{(b)}$ denotes the baroclinic time at which |
---|
998 | the vertically integrated forcing $\textbf{M}(\tau)$ |
---|
999 | (note that this forcing includes the surface freshwater forcing), |
---|
1000 | the tracer fields, the freshwater flux $\text{EMP}_w(\tau)$, |
---|
1001 | and total depth of the ocean $H(\tau)$ are held for the duration of the barotropic time stepping over |
---|
1002 | a single cycle. |
---|
1003 | This is also the time that sets the barotropic time steps via |
---|
1004 | \[ |
---|
1005 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_t} |
---|
1006 | t_n=\tau+n\rdt |
---|
1007 | \] |
---|
1008 | with $n$ an integer. |
---|
1009 | The density scaled surface pressure is evaluated via |
---|
1010 | \[ |
---|
1011 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_ps} |

1015 | g \;\eta_s^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n}) & \text{linear case} |
---|
1016 | \end{cases} |
---|
1017 | \] |
---|
1018 | To get started, we assume the following initial conditions |
---|
1019 | \[ |
---|
1020 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_eta} |
---|
1021 | \begin{split} |

---|
1024 | \end{split} |
---|
1025 | \] |
---|
1026 | with |
---|
1027 | \[ |

---|
1029 | \overline{\eta^{(b)}(\tau)} = \frac{1}{N+1} \sum\limits_{n=0}^N \eta^{(b)}(\tau-\rdt,t_{n}) |
---|
1030 | \] |
---|
1031 | the time averaged surface height taken from the previous barotropic cycle. |
---|
1032 | Likewise, |
---|
1033 | \[ |
---|
1034 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_u} |
---|
1035 | \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n=0}) = \overline{\textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau)} \\ \\ |
---|
1036 | \textbf{U}(\tau,t_{n=1}) = \textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n=0}) + \rdt \ \text{RHS}_{n=0} |
---|
1037 | \] |
---|
1038 | with |
---|
1039 | \[ |
---|
1040 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_u} |
---|
1041 | \overline{\textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau)} = \frac{1}{N+1} \sum\limits_{n=0}^N\textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau-\rdt,t_{n}) |
---|
1042 | \] |
---|
1043 | the time averaged vertically integrated transport. |
---|
1044 | Notably, there is no Robert-Asselin time filter used in the barotropic portion of the integration. |
---|
1045 | |
---|
1046 | Upon reaching $t_{n=N} = \tau + 2\rdt \tau$ , |
---|
1047 | the vertically integrated velocity is time averaged to produce the updated vertically integrated velocity at |
---|
1048 | baroclinic time $\tau + \rdt \tau$ |
---|
1049 | \[ |
---|
1050 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_u} |
---|
1051 | \textbf{U}(\tau+\rdt) = \overline{\textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau+\rdt)} = \frac{1}{N+1} \sum\limits_{n=0}^N\textbf{U}^{(b)}(\tau,t_{n}) |
---|
1052 | \] |
---|
1053 | The surface height on the new baroclinic time step is then determined via a baroclinic leap-frog using |
---|
1054 | the following form |
---|
1055 | |
---|
1056 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1057 | \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_ssh} |
---|
1058 | \eta(\tau+\Delta) - \eta^{F}(\tau-\Delta) = 2\rdt \ \left[ - \nabla \cdot \textbf{U}(\tau) + \text{EMP}_w \right] |
---|
1059 | \end{equation} |
---|
1060 | |
---|
1061 | The use of this "big-leap-frog" scheme for the surface height ensures compatibility between |
---|
1062 | the mass/volume budgets and the tracer budgets. |
---|
1063 | More discussion of this point is provided in Chapter 10 (see in particular Section 10.2). |
---|
1064 | |
---|
1065 | In general, some form of time filter is needed to maintain integrity of the surface height field due to |
---|
1066 | the leap-frog splitting mode in equation \autoref{eq:DYN_spg_ts_ssh}. |
---|
1067 | We have tried various forms of such filtering, |
---|
1068 | with the following method discussed in \cite{griffies.pacanowski.ea_MWR01} chosen due to |
---|
1069 | its stability and reasonably good maintenance of tracer conservation properties (see ??). |
---|
1070 | |
---|
1071 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1072 | \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_sshf} |
---|
1073 | \eta^{F}(\tau-\Delta) = \overline{\eta^{(b)}(\tau)} |
---|
1074 | \end{equation} |
---|
1075 | Another approach tried was |
---|
1076 | |
---|
1077 | \[ |
---|
1078 | % \label{eq:DYN_spg_ts_sshf2} |
---|
1079 | \eta^{F}(\tau-\Delta) = \eta(\tau) |
---|
1080 | + (\alpha/2) \left[\overline{\eta^{(b)}}(\tau+\rdt) |
---|
1081 | + \overline{\eta^{(b)}}(\tau-\rdt) -2 \;\eta(\tau) \right] |
---|
1082 | \] |
---|
1083 | |
---|
1084 | which is useful since it isolates all the time filtering aspects into the term multiplied by $\alpha$. |
---|
1085 | This isolation allows for an easy check that tracer conservation is exact when |
---|
1086 | eliminating tracer and surface height time filtering (see ?? for more complete discussion). |
---|
1087 | However, in the general case with a non-zero $\alpha$, |
---|
1088 | the filter \autoref{eq:DYN_spg_ts_sshf} was found to be more conservative, and so is recommended. |

1150 | Hyperviscous operators are frequently used in the simulation of turbulent flows to |

1268 | The large vertical diffusion coefficient found in the surface mixed layer together with high vertical resolution implies that in the case of explicit time stepping there would be too restrictive a constraint on the time step. |
---|
1269 | Two time stepping schemes can be used for the vertical diffusion term: |
---|
1270 | $(a)$ a forward time differencing scheme |
---|
1271 | (\np{ln\_zdfexp}\forcode{=.true.}) using a time splitting technique (\np{nn\_zdfexp} $>$ 1) or |
---|
1272 | $(b)$ a backward (or implicit) time differencing scheme (\np{ln\_zdfexp}\forcode{=.false.}) |
---|
1273 | (see \autoref{chap:TD}). |
---|
1274 | Note that namelist variables \np{ln\_zdfexp} and \np{nn\_zdfexp} apply to both tracers and dynamics. |
---|
1275 | |
---|
1276 | The formulation of the vertical subgrid scale physics is the same whatever the vertical coordinate is. |
---|
1277 | The vertical diffusion operators given by \autoref{eq:MB_zdf} take the following semi-discrete space form: |
---|
1278 | \[ |

1279 | % \label{eq:DYN_zdf} |

---|
1289 | \] |
---|
1290 | where $A_{uw}^{vm} $ and $A_{vw}^{vm} $ are the vertical eddy viscosity and diffusivity coefficients. |
---|
1291 | The way these coefficients are evaluated depends on the vertical physics used (see \autoref{chap:ZDF}). |
---|
1292 | |
---|
1293 | The surface boundary condition on momentum is the stress exerted by the wind. |
---|
1294 | At the surface, the momentum fluxes are prescribed as the boundary condition on |
---|
1295 | the vertical turbulent momentum fluxes, |

---|
1300 | \end{equation} |
---|
1301 | where $\left( \tau_u ,\tau_v \right)$ are the two components of the wind stress vector in |
---|
1302 | the (\textbf{i},\textbf{j}) coordinate system. |
---|
1303 | The high mixing coefficients in the surface mixed layer ensure that the surface wind stress is distributed in |
---|
1304 | the vertical over the mixed layer depth. |
---|
1305 | If the vertical mixing coefficient is small (when no mixed layer scheme is used) |
---|
1306 | the surface stress enters only the top model level, as a body force. |
---|
1307 | The surface wind stress is calculated in the surface module routines (SBC, see \autoref{chap:SBC}). |

1339 | \section{Wetting and drying } |
---|
1340 | \label{sec:DYN_wetdry} |
---|
1341 | |
---|
1342 | There are two main options for wetting and drying code (wd): |
---|
1343 | (a) an iterative limiter (il) and (b) a directional limiter (dl). |
---|
1344 | The directional limiter is based on the scheme developed by \cite{warner.defne.ea_CG13} for RO |
---|
1345 | MS |
---|
1346 | which was in turn based on ideas developed for POM by \cite{oey_OM06}. The iterative |
---|
1347 | limiter is a new scheme. The iterative limiter is activated by setting $\mathrm{ln\_wd\_il} = \mathrm{.true.}$ |
---|
1348 | and $\mathrm{ln\_wd\_dl} = \mathrm{.false.}$. The directional limiter is activated |
---|
1349 | by setting $\mathrm{ln\_wd\_dl} = \mathrm{.true.}$ and $\mathrm{ln\_wd\_il} = \mathrm{.false.}$. |
---|
1350 | |
---|
1351 | \begin{listing} |
---|
1352 | \nlst{namwad} |
---|
1353 | \caption{\forcode{&namwad}} |
---|
1354 | \label{lst:namwad} |
---|
1355 | \end{listing} |
---|
1356 | |
---|
1357 | The following terminology is used. The depth of the topography (positive downwards) |
---|
1358 | at each $(i,j)$ point is the quantity stored in array $\mathrm{ht\_wd}$ in the \NEMO\ code. |
---|
1359 | The height of the free surface (positive upwards) is denoted by $ \mathrm{ssh}$. Given the sign |
---|
1360 | conventions used, the water depth, $h$, is the height of the free surface plus the depth of the |
---|
1361 | topography (i.e. $\mathrm{ssh} + \mathrm{ht\_wd}$). |
---|
1362 | |
---|
1363 | Both wd schemes take all points in the domain below a land elevation of $\mathrm{rn\_wdld}$ to be |
---|
1364 | covered by water. They require the topography specified with a model |
---|
1365 | configuration to have negative depths at points where the land is higher than the |
---|
1366 | topography's reference sea-level. The vertical grid in \NEMO\ is normally computed relative to an |
---|
1367 | initial state with zero sea surface height elevation. |
---|
1368 | The user can choose to compute the vertical grid and heights in the model relative to |
---|
1369 | a non-zero reference height for the free surface. This choice affects the calculation of the metrics and depths |
---|
1370 | (i.e. the $\mathrm{e3t\_0, ht\_0}$ etc. arrays). |
---|
1371 | |
---|
1372 | Points where the water depth is less than $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1}$ are interpreted as ``dry''. |
---|
1373 | $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1}$ is usually chosen to be of order $0.05$m but extreme topographies |
---|
1374 | with very steep slopes require larger values for normal choices of time-step. Surface fluxes |
---|
1375 | are also switched off for dry cells to prevent freezing, boiling etc. of very thin water layers. |
---|
1376 | The fluxes are tappered down using a $\mathrm{tanh}$ weighting function |
---|
1377 | to no flux as the dry limit $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1}$ is approached. Even wet cells can be very shallow. |
---|
1378 | The depth at which to start tapering is controlled by the user by setting $\mathrm{rn\_wd\_sbcdep}$. |
---|
1379 | The fraction $(<1)$ of sufrace fluxes to use at this depth is set by $\mathrm{rn\_wd\_sbcfra}$. |
---|
1380 | |
---|
1381 | Both versions of the code have been tested in six test cases provided in the WAD\_TEST\_CASES configuration |
---|
1382 | and in ``realistic'' configurations covering parts of the north-west European shelf. |
---|
1383 | All these configurations have used pure sigma coordinates. It is expected that |
---|
1384 | the wetting and drying code will work in domains with more general s-coordinates provided |
---|
1385 | the coordinates are pure sigma in the region where wetting and drying actually occurs. |
---|
1386 | |
---|
1387 | The next sub-section descrbies the directional limiter and the following sub-section the iterative limiter. |
---|
1388 | The final sub-section covers some additional considerations that are relevant to both schemes. |

1394 | \subsection[Directional limiter (\textit{wet\_dry.F90})]{Directional limiter (\mdl{wet\_dry})} |
---|
1395 | \label{subsec:DYN_wd_directional_limiter} |
---|
1396 | |
---|
1397 | The principal idea of the directional limiter is that |
---|
1398 | water should not be allowed to flow out of a dry tracer cell (i.e. one whose water depth is less than \np{rn\_wdmin1}). |
---|
1399 | |
---|
1400 | All the changes associated with this option are made to the barotropic solver for the non-linear |
---|
1401 | free surface code within dynspg\_ts. |
---|
1402 | On each barotropic sub-step the scheme determines the direction of the flow across each face of all the tracer cells |
---|
1403 | and sets the flux across the face to zero when the flux is from a dry tracer cell. This prevents cells |
---|
1404 | whose depth is rn\_wdmin1 or less from drying out further. The scheme does not force $h$ (the water depth) at tracer cells |
---|
1405 | to be at least the minimum depth and hence is able to conserve mass / volume. |
---|
1406 | |
---|
1407 | The flux across each $u$-face of a tracer cell is multiplied by a factor zuwdmask (an array which depends on ji and jj). |
---|
1408 | If the user sets \np{ln\_wd\_dl\_ramp}\forcode{=.false.} then zuwdmask is 1 when the |
---|
1409 | flux is from a cell with water depth greater than \np{rn\_wdmin1} and 0 otherwise. If the user sets |
---|
1410 | \np{ln\_wd\_dl\_ramp}\forcode{=.true.} the flux across the face is ramped down as the water depth decreases |
---|
1411 | from 2 * \np{rn\_wdmin1} to \np{rn\_wdmin1}. The use of this ramp reduced grid-scale noise in idealised test cases. |
---|
1412 | |
---|
1413 | At the point where the flux across a $u$-face is multiplied by zuwdmask , we have chosen |
---|
1414 | also to multiply the corresponding velocity on the ``now'' step at that face by zuwdmask. We could have |
---|
1415 | chosen not to do that and to allow fairly large velocities to occur in these ``dry'' cells. |
---|
1416 | The rationale for setting the velocity to zero is that it is the momentum equations that are being solved |
---|
1417 | and the total momentum of the upstream cell (treating it as a finite volume) should be considered |
---|
1418 | to be its depth times its velocity. This depth is considered to be zero at ``dry'' $u$-points consistent with its |
---|
1419 | treatment in the calculation of the flux of mass across the cell face. |
---|
1420 | |
---|
1421 | |
---|
1422 | \cite{warner.defne.ea_CG13} state that in their scheme the velocity masks at the cell faces for the baroclinic |
---|
1423 | timesteps are set to 0 or 1 depending on whether the average of the masks over the barotropic sub-steps is respectively less than |
---|
1424 | or greater than 0.5. That scheme does not conserve tracers in integrations started from constant tracer |
---|
1425 | fields (tracers independent of $x$, $y$ and $z$). Our scheme conserves constant tracers because |
---|
1426 | the velocities used at the tracer cell faces on the baroclinic timesteps are carefully calculated by dynspg\_ts |
---|
1427 | to equal their mean value during the barotropic steps. If the user sets \np{ln\_wd\_dl\_bc}\forcode{=.true.}, the |
---|
1428 | baroclinic velocities are also multiplied by a suitably weighted average of zuwdmask. |

---|
1438 | \label{subsec:DYN_wd_il_spg_limiter} |
---|
1439 | |
---|
1440 | The iterative limiter modifies the fluxes across the faces of cells that are either already ``dry'' |
---|
1441 | or may become dry within the next time-step using an iterative method. |
---|
1442 | |
---|
1443 | The flux limiter for the barotropic flow (devised by Hedong Liu) can be understood as follows: |
---|
1444 | |
---|
1445 | The continuity equation for the total water depth in a column |
---|
1446 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1447 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_continuity} |
---|
1448 | \frac{\partial h}{\partial t} + \mathbf{\nabla.}(h\mathbf{u}) = 0 . |
---|
1449 | \end{equation} |
---|
1450 | can be written in discrete form as |
---|
1451 | |
---|
1452 | \begin{align} |
---|
1453 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_2} |
---|
1454 | \frac{e_1 e_2}{\Delta t} ( h_{i,j}(t_{n+1}) - h_{i,j}(t_e) ) |
---|
1455 | &= - ( \mathrm{flxu}_{i+1,j} - \mathrm{flxu}_{i,j} + \mathrm{flxv}_{i,j+1} - \mathrm{flxv}_{i,j} ) \\ |
---|
1456 | &= \mathrm{zzflx}_{i,j} . |
---|
1457 | \end{align} |
---|
1458 | |
---|
1459 | In the above $h$ is the depth of the water in the column at point $(i,j)$, |
---|
1460 | $\mathrm{flxu}_{i+1,j}$ is the flux out of the ``eastern'' face of the cell and |
---|
1461 | $\mathrm{flxv}_{i,j+1}$ the flux out of the ``northern'' face of the cell; $t_{n+1}$ is |
---|
1462 | the new timestep, $t_e$ is the old timestep (either $t_b$ or $t_n$) and $ \Delta t = |
---|
1463 | t_{n+1} - t_e$; $e_1 e_2$ is the area of the tracer cells centred at $(i,j)$ and |
---|
1464 | $\mathrm{zzflx}$ is the sum of the fluxes through all the faces. |
---|
1465 | |
---|
1466 | The flux limiter splits the flux $\mathrm{zzflx}$ into fluxes that are out of the cell |
---|
1467 | (zzflxp) and fluxes that are into the cell (zzflxn). Clearly |
---|
1468 | |
---|
1469 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1470 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_zzflx_p_n_1} |
---|
1471 | \mathrm{zzflx}_{i,j} = \mathrm{zzflxp}_{i,j} + \mathrm{zzflxn}_{i,j} . |
---|
1472 | \end{equation} |
---|
1473 | |
---|
1474 | The flux limiter iteratively adjusts the fluxes $\mathrm{flxu}$ and $\mathrm{flxv}$ until |
---|
1475 | none of the cells will ``dry out''. To be precise the fluxes are limited until none of the |
---|
1476 | cells has water depth less than $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1}$ on step $n+1$. |
---|
1477 | |
---|
1478 | Let the fluxes on the $m$th iteration step be denoted by $\mathrm{flxu}^{(m)}$ and |
---|
1479 | $\mathrm{flxv}^{(m)}$. Then the adjustment is achieved by seeking a set of coefficients, |
---|
1480 | $\mathrm{zcoef}_{i,j}^{(m)}$ such that: |
---|
1481 | |
---|
1482 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1483 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_coef} |
---|
1484 | \begin{split} |
---|
1485 | \mathrm{zzflxp}^{(m)}_{i,j} =& \mathrm{zcoef}_{i,j}^{(m)} \mathrm{zzflxp}^{(0)}_{i,j} \\ |
---|
1486 | \mathrm{zzflxn}^{(m)}_{i,j} =& \mathrm{zcoef}_{i,j}^{(m)} \mathrm{zzflxn}^{(0)}_{i,j} |
---|
1487 | \end{split} |
---|
1488 | \end{equation} |
---|
1489 | |
---|
1490 | where the coefficients are $1.0$ generally but can vary between $0.0$ and $1.0$ around |
---|
1491 | cells that would otherwise dry. |
---|
1492 | |
---|
1493 | The iteration is initialised by setting |
---|
1494 | |
---|
1495 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1496 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_zzflx_initial} |
---|
1497 | \mathrm{zzflxp^{(0)}}_{i,j} = \mathrm{zzflxp}_{i,j} , \quad \mathrm{zzflxn^{(0)}}_{i,j} = \mathrm{zzflxn}_{i,j} . |
---|
1498 | \end{equation} |
---|
1499 | |
---|
1500 | The fluxes out of cell $(i,j)$ are updated at the $m+1$th iteration if the depth of the |
---|
1501 | cell on timestep $t_e$, namely $h_{i,j}(t_e)$, is less than the total flux out of the cell |
---|
1502 | times the timestep divided by the cell area. Using (\autoref{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_2}) this |
---|
1503 | condition is |
---|
1504 | |
---|
1505 | \begin{equation} |
---|
1506 | \label{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_if} |
---|
1507 | h_{i,j}(t_e) - \mathrm{rn\_wdmin1} < \frac{\Delta t}{e_1 e_2} ( \mathrm{zzflxp}^{(m)}_{i,j} + \mathrm{zzflxn}^{(m)}_{i,j} ) . |
---|
1508 | \end{equation} |
---|
1509 | |
---|
1510 | Rearranging (\autoref{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_if}) we can obtain an expression for the maximum |
---|
1511 | outward flux that can be allowed and still maintain the minimum wet depth: |
---|
1512 | |
---|
1513 | \begin{equation} |
---|

1521 | Note a small tolerance ($\mathrm{rn\_wdmin2}$) has been introduced here {\itshape [Q: Why is |
---|
1522 | this necessary/desirable?]}. Substituting from (\autoref{eq:DYN_wd_continuity_coef}) gives an |
---|
1523 | expression for the coefficient needed to multiply the outward flux at this cell in order |
---|
1524 | to avoid drying. |

1525 | |

---|
1533 | |
---|
1534 | Only the outward flux components are altered but, of course, outward fluxes from one cell |
---|
1535 | are inward fluxes to adjacent cells and the balance in these cells may need subsequent |
---|
1536 | adjustment; hence the iterative nature of this scheme. Note, for example, that the flux |
---|
1537 | across the ``eastern'' face of the $(i,j)$th cell is only updated at the $m+1$th iteration |
---|
1538 | if that flux at the $m$th iteration is out of the $(i,j)$th cell. If that is the case then |
---|
1539 | the flux across that face is into the $(i+1,j)$ cell and that flux will not be updated by |
---|
1540 | the calculation for the $(i+1,j)$th cell. In this sense the updates to the fluxes across |
---|
1541 | the faces of the cells do not ``compete'' (they do not over-write each other) and one |
---|
1542 | would expect the scheme to converge relatively quickly. The scheme is flux based so |
---|
1543 | conserves mass. It also conserves constant tracers for the same reason that the |
---|
1544 | directional limiter does. |

---|
1552 | |
---|
1553 | At ``dry'' points the water depth is usually close to $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1}$. If the |
---|
1554 | topography is sloping at these points the sea-surface will have a similar slope and there |
---|
1555 | will hence be very large horizontal pressure gradients at these points. The WAD modifies |
---|
1556 | the magnitude but not the sign of the surface pressure gradients (zhpi and zhpj) at such |
---|
1557 | points by mulitplying them by positive factors (zcpx and zcpy respectively) that lie |
---|
1558 | between $0$ and $1$. |
---|
1559 | |
---|
1560 | We describe how the scheme works for the ``eastward'' pressure gradient, zhpi, calculated |
---|
1561 | at the $(i,j)$th $u$-point. The scheme uses the ht\_wd depths and surface heights at the |
---|
1562 | neighbouring $(i+1,j)$ and $(i,j)$ tracer points. zcpx is calculated using two logicals |
---|
1563 | variables, $\mathrm{ll\_tmp1}$ and $\mathrm{ll\_tmp2}$ which are evaluated for each grid |
---|
1564 | column. The three possible combinations are illustrated in \autoref{fig:DYN_WAD_dynhpg}. |

1578 | The first logical, $\mathrm{ll\_tmp1}$, is set to true if and only if the water depth at |
---|
1579 | both neighbouring points is greater than $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1} + \mathrm{rn\_wdmin2}$ and |
---|
1580 | the minimum height of the sea surface at the two points is greater than the maximum height |
---|
1581 | of the topography at the two points: |

1582 | |

1583 | \begin{equation} |

1584 | \label{eq:DYN_ll_tmp1} |
---|
1585 | \begin{split} |

---|
1592 | \end{equation} |
---|
1593 | |
---|
1594 | The second logical, $\mathrm{ll\_tmp2}$, is set to true if and only if the maximum height |
---|
1595 | of the sea surface at the two points is greater than the maximum height of the topography |
---|
1596 | at the two points plus $\mathrm{rn\_wdmin1} + \mathrm{rn\_wdmin2}$ |
---|
1597 | |

1598 | \begin{equation} |

1600 | \begin{split} |

1601 | \mathrm{ ll\_tmp2 } = & \mathrm{( ABS( sshn(ji,jj) - sshn(ji+1,jj) ) > 1.E-12 )\ .AND.}\\ |

1605 | \end{equation} |
---|
1606 | |
---|
1607 | If $\mathrm{ll\_tmp1}$ is true then the surface pressure gradient, zhpi at the $(i,j)$ |
---|
1608 | point is unmodified. If both logicals are false zhpi is set to zero. |
---|
1609 | |
---|
1610 | If $\mathrm{ll\_tmp1}$ is true and $\mathrm{ll\_tmp2}$ is false then the surface pressure |
---|
1611 | gradient is multiplied through by zcpx which is the absolute value of the difference in |
---|
1612 | the water depths at the two points divided by the difference in the surface heights at the |
---|
1613 | two points. Thus the sign of the sea surface height gradient is retained but the magnitude |
---|
1614 | of the pressure force is determined by the difference in water depths rather than the |
---|
1615 | difference in surface height between the two points. Note that dividing by the difference |
---|
1616 | between the sea surface heights can be problematic if the heights approach parity. An |
---|
1617 | additional condition is applied to $\mathrm{ ll\_tmp2 }$ to ensure it is .false. in such |
---|
1618 | conditions. |

1621 | \label{subsec:DYN_WAD_additional} |
---|
1622 | |
---|
1623 | In the very shallow water where wetting and drying occurs the parametrisation of |
---|
1624 | bottom drag is clearly very important. In order to promote stability |
---|
1625 | it is sometimes useful to calculate the bottom drag using an implicit time-stepping approach. |
---|
1626 | |
---|
1627 | Suitable specifcation of the surface heat flux in wetting and drying domains in forced and |
---|
1628 | coupled simulations needs further consideration. In order to prevent freezing or boiling |
---|
1629 | in uncoupled integrations the net surface heat fluxes need to be appropriately limited. |
