#1256 closed Bug (fixed)

Position of Gibraltar in ORCA1 configuration

Reported by: PiR Owned by: nemo
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: OCE Version: v3.4
Severity: Keywords: OPA straits v3.4


In the various routines where some straits features are hard-coded (e.g. dommsk.F90, domhgr.F90, diafwb.F90...), it seems that the specified latitudinal index for Gibraltar Strait is not correct in the ORCA1 configuration.

An example -my nemo version is v3.4 revision 4142-
In /DIA/diafwb.F90, line 166 :

Gibraltar is specified as:

! ! =======================

CASE ( 1 ) ! ORCA_R1 configurations

! ! =======================
ii0 = 283 ; ii1 = 283
ij0 = 200 ; ij1 = 200

But when plotting the bathymetry from, ij0=200 is a continental point, and the actual Gibraltar is at j=201.

This is a weird part of NEMO for now: some hard coded changes concerning some configurations. This is expected to disappear with the simplification process ongoing this year.
For now, you are using the v3.4 NEMO reference, and using some modified input files for ORCA1. This code is obsolete with these input files.
ORCA1 is not a reference configuration, so that you should get in touch with the person who gave you the files, or change the source code.
Olivier Marti, at LSCE so as you, knows about this
