Hi Yu-Kun

The MITgcm is always non-divergent

So far as I know, QG (quasi-geostrophic) means using Cartesian coordinates with f0 and sbeta set in parameter file 'data' to mimic beta-plane approximation.  Barotropics means that only one single layer is used in the model.  I've no idea how to constrain the model to produce nondivergent flow.
