Coriolis Force

Youngling Posts: 9 Join Date: 6/15/15 Recent Posts
When I set the latitude to an appropriate value for my domain the results are very bad, lots of spikes in water level etc. Is there something else that needs to be changed when coriolis is turned on or is that part of the code just numerically unstable? I am using DFLOWFM 1.03.32933.
Thanks!

Dear Liv,

Could you perhaps attach your model files or contact us via support desk? Without the model I can only advice you on a matter of recommended settings.
Generally you need only proper values of AngLat (and AngLon especially if you have temperature on, in your model).
Is your network in Cartesian or in Spherical coordinates? Could you also try with the newer version of DeltaShell?

Kind regards,
Michal

I do not have the same issue with the latest version of the code.
Thanks,

Why is longitude restricted to + or - 90 degrees. This makes sense for latitude, but not longitude. When I enter an accurate longitude I get an error in the gui.

Dear Liv,

Once more, sorry for the inconvenience and this has been corrected. This fix along with few others will be included in the upcoming release (in about 2 weeks time). Please check then the FTP server.

Kind regards,
Michal
