3.14 Held-Suarez atmospheric simulation on cube-sphere grid with 32 square cube faces.

(in directory: verification/tutorial_held_suarez_cs/)

This example illustrates the use of the MITgcm as an Atmospheric GCM, using simple Held and Suarez [1994] forcing to simulate Atmospheric Dynamics on global scale. The set-up use the rescaled pressure coordinate ($ p^*$ )[Adcroft and Campin, 2004] in the vertical direction, with 20 equaly-spaced levels, and the conformal cube-sphere grid (C32) [Adcroft et al., 2004a]. The files for this experiment can be found in the verification directory under tutorial_held_suarez_cs.
