gher-ulg/DIVA: v4.7.1

Sylvain Watelet; Charles Troupin; Jean-Marie Beckers; Alexander Barth; Mohamed Ouberdous

New features

  • Major feature : bottom analysis is now possible. The distance is counted from the bottom ocean, derived from the interpolation of the topography topo_fine.grd. This topography can be different (and finer) than topo.grd used for the creation of contours.
  • Major feature : conversion of EMODnet bathymetry to Diva-readable format with the tool emobath2ghertopo.
  • Major feature : Variable correlation length depending on the gradient of the depth. Advection field adapted to this relative length field. Suited for bottom analyses. Updated programs : diva3Ddat, divarlvargraddepth, rlvargraddepth.f90, divadoall, divaUVtopo, UVtopogen.f, divadocommit.
    • Acknowledgements field in 3D and 4D netCDFs.
    • New compilation option DIVAHUGEMEMORY. Enabled by default in divacompile_options, it allows the use of a finer mesh, and/or a larger domain. Particularly useful with variables characterized by low correlation lengths.

Bug fixes

  • divacutNCDF : correction on climatology bounds + dealing with very big obsid vector
  • divacompile_options : new tests on nc-config, due to recent change in its behaviour
  • dv3Dreadnc.F : warning if dimensions are incoherent between GridInfo.dat and the netcdf file
  • divadoall, divadoNCDF , divadoNCYR : corrected handling of 3DNCinfo and 3DNClist files so that recreating a new 4D NC file is much easier
  • divadoxml : removed because deprecated (use divadoxml-gui instead)
