WARNING: the description of this experiment is not complete.
In particular, many parameters are not yet described.
This example experiment demonstrates using the MITgcm to simulate the
planetary ocean circulation. The simulation is configured with
realistic geography and bathymetry on a
spherical polar grid. The files for this experiment are in the
verification directory under tutorial_global_oce_latlon. Fifteen
levels are used in the vertical, ranging in thickness from
at the surface to
at depth, giving a maximum
model depth of
Different time-steps are used to accelerate the convergence to
equilibrium [Bryan, 1984] so that, at this resolution,
the configuration can be integrated forward for thousands of years
on a single processor desktop computer.
