[MITgcm-support] bathy file with Spherical Polar Grid

Hi, Martin

Thank you for your advice, I'm sorry for the size of my attachments, I'll 
pay attention to it latet.

I restart the case in another unmodified copy of MIGgcm, and the value of 
depth is right. There is truly a modified file in the "code/" directory 
which  works well in cartesian coordinate.

Best wishes,

Lequan Chi

please DO NOT send emails with big attachments (yours was 12MB) to this 
list, rather post links to data that you want to share.

You topography file looks OK, also dlat.init and dlon.init (although I find 
the spacing a bit odd).
I am a little confused about the zCoordInputData=.true. line in name list 
below. This is a (unnecessary) modification that you have done (it's not 
part of what you can download), so I cannot rule out the possibiltiy that 
this breaks some parts of the initialization. Please try again with an 
unmodified copy of the code (cvs co MITgcm_code), otherwise I cannot help.
