[MITgcm-support] Friction velocity ustar in S/R exf_wind.F

I think it should be

ustar = SQRT (wStress(i,j,bi,bj) / atmrho)

rather than

ustar = wStress(i,j,bi,bj)*recip_sqrtRhoA

in exf package in S/R exf_winf.F (line 179)?

In the current version wStress is not affected by the function SQRT,
but should be, in my opinion.

Best regards,
