[MITgcm-support] no_slip_bottom and bottomDragLinear questions

Hi everyone,

I ran two simulations, one with no_slip_bottom=.TRUE., and one with
no_slip_bottom=.FALSE.. The differences were minor, and noticed I 
inadvertently had
bottomDragLinear=0.0 in data file for both simulations. I'm wondering 
if having
bottomDragLinear=0 really ran the no_slip_bottom=TRUE simulation as a 
free-slip bottom?
Or if it is a parameter to increase what might occur simply through 
calculation by
setting bottom velocity to zero.

Thanks for your assisstance,
