[MITgcm-support] Shelf Ice Melt Rate

I’m having trouble understanding how to compute the total melt rate under the ice shelves given the output parameters in the shelf ice package.  I’ve read the literature on how the melt is computed via the heat conservation and salt conservation equations, but I’m still puzzled as to how to calculate it given the model output.
I’ve printed out the shelf ice parameters.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
