Units of the RiverFlow and CoastalFlow

Contrary to what is written in the code, coastalflow and riverflow exiting the call to routing are not in m3/dt but kg/dt.

This needs to be corrected in routing.f90 by dividing by 1000 just as done for hydrographs.

The models receiving riverflow and coastalflow (LMDZ in IPSLCM) then need to pay attention to this modification.

Probably the description of these variables in the XIOS XML files need to be adapted.

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

Fixed with revision 2183 :

The RiverFLow and Coastal flow are now divided by 1000 (to convert kg of H2O

to m3) in routing.f90 so that all the comments are correct and that
intersurf.f90 does not any more include some unexplained divisions by 1000.
