New developments of the version 5.3

SURFEX

New version 8.0+ of SURFEX corresponding to the official version 8.0 of SURFEX + new developments from MESONH due to the parallelization of PGD, PREP_REAL_CASE and SPAWNING.

BE CAREFUL some NAMELISTS have changed :

PRE_PGD1.nam :
&NAM_COVER : YFILETYPE becomes YCOVERFILETYPE

&NAM_ZS : YFILETYPE becomes YZSFILETYPE

&NAM_PGD_GRID : YFILETYPE becomes YINIFILETYPE

PRE_REAL1.nam/PRE_IDEA1.nam

&NAM_PREP_SEAFLUX  : CTYPE becomes CTYPE_SEAFLX

MICROPHYSICAL SCHEME LIMA (B.Vié)

To activate it :

&NAM_PARAMn CCLOUD='LIMA' /

The options of the scheme are given in &NAM_PARAM_LIMA and described in the user's guide.

An example test case has been introduced in MY_RUN/KTEST/014_LIMA

CENTRAL TEMPORAL SCHEME FOR WIND WITH TIME SPLITTING (C.Lac, F.Auguste)

The 4th order centred scheme for wind transport can be used with 2 temporal schemes :

CTEMP_SCHEME='LEFR' : Leap-Frog : equivalent to the previous 5.2 version CTEMP_SCHEME='RKC4' : 4th order Runge-Kutta time splitting : the time step can be multiplied by a factor between 2 and 3 compared to Leap-Frog

BE CAREFUL this variable CTEMP_SCHEME is now necessary for all the wind transport schemes in

&NAM_ADVn CUVW_ADV_SCHEME="CEN4TH", CTEMP_SCHEME='LEFR'/

COUPLING with a WAVE model via OASIS (J.Piannezze)

For more information see the new test case 013_Iroise_ideal_case_coupling and the Readme inside explaining the different steps to compile MESONH with OASIS and run the test.

RTTOV 11.3 (J-P.Chaboureau)

As a reminder the RTTOV package is not included in the open source version of MESONH. For more information see A-INSTALL
