Please ask Patrick what the forcing fields (variables names) are, and
he used climatology (e.g. monthly means) or time-varying forcing. I can
with preparing them using ERA-Interim. The IPRC has the ERA-Interim.
Besides the surface forcing fields, you'll need a bathymetry file and
for U,V,T and S. The bathymetry file is the most important one. It'll be
great if Patrick
can provide you that (Creating bathymetry for a global domain is very
I can help with initial conditions too.
I recently created forcing fields and initial conditions for the
tropical Pacific, using
a bathymetry file created by a girl postdoc (she told me that she worked
on it for two
weeks, taking great care in the definition of channels, islands, inlets
Please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to help.
