Stochastic component to represent sub-grid scale turbulence

p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 120%; }a:link { }
Lagrangian-based particle tracking models, include a stochastic component
(both in the horizontal and in the vertical) to represent sub-grid scale turbulence not resolved by
the physical model (i.e., Brickman, D., Smith, P.C., 2002). What about
Ichthop?
 
Thanks!

Ichthyop version: 
Ichthyop 3.2
Hydrodynamic dataset: 
ROMS_AGRIF
Operating system: 
Ubuntu

Yes, in the horizontal, see elements from a previous topic http://www.ichthyop.org/forum/tke-disspation-rate-epsilon-effect-horizon...

Hi Ichthyop users,
Following Peliz et al (2007), stochastic horizontal and vertical velocities are Gaussian random fields or not? are incompressible or compressible?
Thanks a lot for any information.
Best regards

Hi Dalila

Currently, stochatic vertical component is not included. In the horizontal, the random movement is generated by using a Mersenne Twister pseudo random number generator.

Thank you Nicolas for your reply.
