[Mitgcm-support] Unrealistic high W velocities

Hi support

I try to run some laboratory experiment and use the model without the
hydrostatic approximation (I also use the phi_hyd calculation code, however,
I am not sure what this means).

Anyway, I often encounter W velocities that are a factor 10-100 larger than
the horizontal velocities (the high W velocities are found in a very thin
region). As far as I can tell this is totally unrealistic and I am somewhat
worried about the results. Can it be that I use a deltaTmom that is much
smaller than deltaTtracer and deltaTClock?

Any suggestions?
