Hi Amitabh,

>From your "data" file, It seems to me that you are above the stability
criteria (see, e.g., documentation section 3.10 : Global Ocean Simulation
at 4.o, and especially subsection : Numerical Stability Criteria).
and this can easily explains why the model is blowing up.

But otherwise, given the delR you specify in file "data",
the total depth in the model will always be 
  <= sum(delR) = 990m (is it right ?)
so I don't quiet understand this Levitus/bathymetry compatibility
issue below 1.km depth.
