Hi Dan,

Dimitris is right. We stop using ALLOW_SUBGLACIAL_RUNOFF and replace it with pkg/obcs. We first dig a hole under the ice using shelfice pkg, and allow fresh cold water to inject into the ocean by setting boundary T,S,V with obcs pkg. MITgcm_contrib/icefront/2D_example is an example of this method.

Dimitris, shall we remove ALLOW_SUBGLACIAL_RUNOFF part of code to avoid confusion? I can do it from UCI machine.

Is there a replacement subroutine that should be used? or should ALLOW_SUBGLACIAL_RUNOFF not be used with this package?
