#2325 new Request

add EAP rheology to SI3

Reported by: stefryn Owned by: systeam
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: SI3 Version: trunk
Severity: minor Keywords: rheology



Current EVP rheology assumes ice is isotropic, but observations show linear kinematic features (LKF) which are sign of anisotropic behaviour.
Elasitc anisotropic plastic (EAP) rheology has been developed by UCL to address this shortcoming. It is routinely used in CICE simulations and shows more realistic LKF patterns.
The IMMERSE project has a milestone and deliverable to implement EAP rheology in SI3.


Add new module icedyn_rhg_eap.F90 with similar structure to the existing icedyn_rhg_evp.F90 module to include EAP rheology as an option in SI3.
