Minor bug in the initial values of sea-ice albedo in coupled mode

Reported by: cetlod Owned by: systeam
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: SBC Version: trunk
Severity: minor Keywords:



The cloud fraction cloud_fra needed to compute the sea-ice albedo is uninitialized during the first time steps in coupled mode


In coupled mode, the variable cloud_fra is given in the routine sbc_cpl_ice_flx which routine is called after the computation of sea-ice albedo in icesbc. That leads to an inconsistency since the sea-ice albedo depends on the value of cloud cover


The solution consists to recover the cloud fraction variable in the routine sbc_cpl_rcv
