Vertical velocity fields?

Hi - I am new to Icthyops, and trying to ascertain if it will meet my modeling needs. I ran through the tutorial, and have looked through the advanced options for configuration. I didn't see an option to include vertical (w) velocity fields, and found no information in the user guide. I know you can add your own ROMS variables in the configuration, but is Icthyop prepared to read and use w velocity fields?

Ichthyop version: 
Ichthyop 3.3alpha

Hello Dan.

It is possible to use 3D ROMS forcing files including vertical velocity fields. When creating a new configuration, select the "ROMS 3D" or "ROMS 3D OpenDAP" template.
