#2432 closed Bug (fixed)

multiple 3rd dimensions in iom_rstput

Reported by: smasson Owned by: systeam
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: IOM Version: trunk
Severity: minor Keywords:



Several tricks have been done to be able to manage different 3rd dimensions in NetCDF files created by iom_open and iom_rstput.
Adding tricks on top of existing tricks is not a good solution… and end up with bugs…
For example in ICE_AGRIF (because jpk = 2 = jpka) iom_nf90_rp0123d try to access undefined variable (ght_abl).


Creating a NetCDF file with several dimensions that could be used as a 3rd dimension is feasible.
The problem rises when we write 3D data with iom_rstput. We should be able to know to which 3rd dimension we should attach the variable… This cannot be done with the dimension size as they can be identical in some cases (see the bug we have today in ICE_AGRIF).
To do the job, we should add an argument to iom_rstput to say which 3rd dimension we should use. This is not a very nice/light solution…


Instead of doing a more complicated code, we propose to simplify the things:
→ NetCDF file created by iom_open and iom_rstput can have only one unique 3rd dimension which can be specified through optional arguments in iom_open

This solution forces

1) to split restart files (1 for each component): this is already the case today, so their is no changes here
2) a file created by dia_wri_state (output.init and output.abort) can no more contain 3D variables from both, OCE (jpk) and ICE (numcat). We must therefore split this file in 2: output.init and output.init_ice or output.abort and output.abort_ice. This is the only change imposed by this solution.
