[MITgcm-support] Surface gravity waves?

Amato, you don't need to explicitly resolve surface gravity waves in  
order to simulate storm surges.
For example in the this paper: http://ecco2.org/manuscripts/2007/gibraltar.pdf
storm surges were simulated using typical MITgcm implicit free surface  

If you want to resolve surface gravity waves rather than treat them  
I am guessing that all you need to do is to reduce deltat, the model  
time step.
