[MITgcm-support] Problem with vertical grid.

Hi Josué,

usually these errors are not connected to delR directly, but to some previous error in the namelist, for example (I am only guessing), you specify too many values for delX and then something funny happens in memory and in the logic of ini_parms.F 
For constant dx/dy I would use dxSpacing = 0.05, dySpacing = 0.05 to avoid this type of problem, but again I am only guessing. 
I would print (print *, delR) the values of delX,delY,delR right after they are read in ini_parms.F (around/after line 1062) so see what the model really reads, maybe that gives you a hint.
