Setting bathymetry on edges

Youngling Posts: 4 Join Date: 8/3/15 Recent Posts
Based on prior work with a different modeling platform, we have sometimes found it useful to set bathymetry directly on the faces (aka edges, velocity points), rather than at cell centers or nodes.

After stepping through the code, I was able to do this to some extent (not fully tested yet) by adding a section to my old-style external forcing file with "QUANTITY=bedlevel". Since this option is not mentioned in the manual (i.e. table B.1 in the user manual), I am wondering if this is ill-advised, and whether that option is likely to remain in the code for the foreseeable future.

Thank you --

Dear Rusty:

Setting bathymetry on deges is supported. What you need to do is to set 'QUANTITY=bedlevel' (as you already did) and also set 'BedlevType = 2' in your MDU file.

Please let me know if it solves your problem or not.

We will also update the related contents in the User Manual.

Kind regards,
