#1743 (SST coupling with land/sea mask) – NEMO

Opened 8 years ago

Closed 6 years ago

#1743 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

SST coupling with land/sea mask

Reported by: huwlewis Owned by: nemo
Priority: low Milestone: 2016 WP
Component: OCE Version: v3.6
Severity: Keywords: coupling



In current implementation, rt0 (273.15K) is added to the NEMO surface temperature field before sending to an atmosphere component, which may result in valid temperatures (i.e. 273.15K) appearing on land points. This ticket aims to update SBC/sbccpl.F90 to ensure valid (>0) surface temperatures are only applied on NEMO sea points.


Update to SBC/sbccpl.F90 to scale sent field by the tmask land/sea mask.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Apparently, the coupled atmospheric model is not suffering from this issue that it is open since more than a year,
unless changes are tracked in some branch that is not mentioned here.
It seems to me that providing zero kelvin temperatures over land (as ocean values are also in kelvin scale)
instead of ZEROES is a suitable solution.

The ticket will be close.

Who may be still in charge/interested can reopen the ticket and add mandatory documentation
(code revision, fix, wiki, dev branch, etc...) to enable the ST to check proposed modifications.
