SPECS' Outclasses

On the basis of priority variables defined at http://www.specs-fp7.eu/wiki/index.php?title=Data#SPECS_list_of_variables, the following table has been defined in the context of EC-Earth (IFS, NEMO and LIM):

For the atmosphere, by default, 3D variables from SH files are produced at the following pressure levels (Pa): 85000,50000,20000,5000, but this is only the default option, more levels can be saved.

In case of LIM3 generating daily and monthly output together is not feasible yet (LIM2 yes).

In case of ORCA025 handling daily output is difficult as far as rebuilding and preparing MMO files are concerned.

(*) In order to activate the diaptr type of output it is essential to modify the nemo namelist like as given below and tested with ORCA1L46 (only):

ln_diaptr  = .true.    !  Poleward heat and salt transport (T) or not (F)
 ln_diaznl  = .true.    !  Add zonal means and meridional stream functions
 ln_subbas  = .true.    !  Atlantic/Pacific/Indian basins computation (T) or not
                        !  (orca configuration only, need input basins mask file named "subbasins.nc"
 ln_ptrcomp = .true.    !  Add decomposition : overturning
 nn_fptr    =  1        !  Frequency of ptr computation [time step]
 nn_fwri    =  24       !  Frequency of ptr outputs [time step]
