Hi Gianmaria,
   I have recently checked in some verification examples under 
MITgcm/verification/MLAdjust.  These have commented data files for how 
to use viscC2Leith and also a modified C2Leith that also detects 
divergent motions as well as vortical, and also a brand-new Smagorinsky 
   Please take a look, and if you still have questions, ask again here 
and I will give a more detailed answer that will be saved for
