Significance of the File

contains different details with respect to the description of a vertical grid structure

File-Contents (in Catchwords)

  1. minimum layer depth: if the actual total water depth at a computational node falls below this limit the node will be treated as a dry node.
  2. (optional) list of depth for layer boundaries: any number of layer boundaries may be prescribed; if no boundary is specified it is assumed that there exists no vertical grid structure; a numerical simulation will then be carried through in depth averaged mode.
  3. (optional) type of layer structure, where the following different forms are supported:
    • an arbitrary number of parallel layers with a well defined depth for each layer (z-layers);
    • any number of bottom and/or surface following layers (sigma-layers).

Notice: dictionary-file layer_z_untrim_dico.dat, normally present in directory $PROGHOME/dic/, will be automatically read by the application program in addition to the user-specified input file.
