[MITgcm-support] Gravity Plume on a Continental Slope Experiment

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for reporting this problem.

I think the manual (section 3.16.2) is missing parenthesis in denomitor, 
for the expression of Delta_x2.
It should be 
Delta_x2 = [ Lx / 2 ] / [ Nx - Lx/(2 Delta_x1) ]
instead of:
Delta_x2 = [ Lx / 2 ] / [ Nx - Lx/2 Delta_x1 ]

Is this enough to reconciliate gendata.m (in verification/tutorial_plume_on_slope/input/)
and the manual ?

The script and the manual don't match up in the denominator for res2 (aka change in x2), and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this problem or if there is some math that I am missing? The second part in the denominator is comprised of two components, and in the script they are divided and in the manual they are multiplied. If anyone has any information on this it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
