Wind implementation

Hi,

I am wondering how the windage is coded in the wind-drift module in Ichthyop.

Cheers

Hi

You can have a look at the source files: action/WindAction.java, action/WindDriftAction.java, action/WindDriftFileAction.java, action/WindDriftURLAction.java

Hi,
I run some tests varying the depth at the sea surface and at 5m. I found that the wind is still influencing the virtual drifter at 5m depth which I didn't except...
Any thoughts about that ?
Thanks
Achref

Hi Achref,

Sorry for my very late response.

In these Java classes, the depth_application parameter defines de maximum depth where the wind influence i on. Did you check that parameter?

Hi Nicolas,
Yes, I can see the depth_application parameter but I can't find where it's defined ? in the cfg file ?

Yes, it is defined in the .xml file. If it does not exist in the sample file, you will need to add it by hand. If you do not fill confident, send it to me and I will add you the parameter.
