Type fields
  • % meke [real(:,:),pointer] :: Vertically averaged eddy kinetic energy [L2 T-2 ~> m2 s-2].

  • % gm_src [real(:,:),pointer] :: MEKE source due to thickness mixing (GM) [R Z L2 T-3 ~> W m-2].

  • % mom_src [real(:,:),pointer] :: MEKE source from lateral friction in the momentum equations [R Z L2 T-3 ~> W m-2].

  • % gme_snk [real(:,:),pointer] :: MEKE sink from GME backscatter in the momentum equations [R Z L2 T-3 ~> W m-2].

  • % kh [real(:,:),pointer] :: The MEKE-derived lateral mixing coefficient [L2 T-1 ~> m2 s-1].

  • % kh_diff [real(:,:),pointer] :: Uses the non-MEKE-derived thickness diffusion coefficient to diffuse.

  • % rd_dx_h [real(:,:),pointer] :: The deformation radius compared with the grid spacing [nondim].

  • % ku [real(:,:),pointer] :: The MEKE-derived lateral viscosity coefficient [L2 T-1 ~> m2 s-1]. This viscosity can be negative when representing backscatter from unresolved eddies (see Jansen and Held, 2014).

  • % au [real(:,:),pointer] :: The MEKE-derived lateral biharmonic viscosity coefficient [L4 T-1 ~> m4 s-1].

  • % khth_fac [real] :: Multiplier to map Kh(MEKE) to KhTh [nondim].

  • % khtr_fac [real] :: Multiplier to map Kh(MEKE) to KhTr [nondim].

  • % backscatter_ro_pow [real] :: Power in Rossby number function for backscatter.

  • % backscatter_ro_c [real] :: Coefficient in Rossby number function for backscatter.
