2.14 Fluxform momentum equations
The original finite volume model was based on the Eulerian flux form
momentum equations. This is the default though the vector invariant
form is optionally available (and recommended in some cases).
The ``G's'' (our colloquial name for all terms on rhs!) are broken
into the various advective, Coriolis, horizontal dissipation, vertical
dissipation and metric forces:
In the hydrostatic limit,
and
, reducing the
vertical momentum to hydrostatic balance.
These terms are calculated in routines called from subroutine MOM_FLUXFORM a collected into the global arrays Gu, Gv,
and Gw.
