This is the ocean_diagnostics developers page. Here, developers can consult and update information related to the maintenance and upgrade of the ocean_diagnostics tools, keep track and notify of errors or any ocean-diagnostics related issues.

  • List of new diagnostics required (links to Ocean diagnostics survey page):
    • Computation of density and extraction of density profiles at specific locations.
    • Indices of strength of the different gyres
    • Meridional Overturning Stream Function as a function of density
    • Complete heat and salt budget (3D) in a specific box
    • Mixed Layer Depth heat (salt) budget
    • Thermocline depth
    • Indices of convection in each convective area
    • T/S diagrams
    • Interpolation of velocities
  • Suggestions of improvements in the codes
    • Could some diagnostics be grouped? Some diagnostics are interrelated and they all require cping the tarballs, untarring and decompressing. For the moment it looks like these pre-processing steps are repeated for each diagnostic (is this right). Grouping them would improve efficiency.
    • In common_ocean_post.txt: Need to specify the dimensions of the input and output fields in the argument information.

  • Updates (new version, migrations…)
    • Update CDF (from 2.1 to 3.4.1) and CDO (from to 1.6.1) tools to latest version

Update CDF and CDO tools

  • Remaining bugs to be corrected in the codes
    • Not a bug, but a generalization to be made:

In common_ocean_post.txt the line: 828 cdo setgrid,t106grid does not invert the grid for the case NEMO_VERSION=Ec3.0_O25L46, now line 829 cdo invertlatdata $3 needs to be inside an “if” statement, or re-written.

To keep track of the previously encountered bugs, once a error is corrected, the corresponding error log is archived on this page.
