Hi XiIaozhou,

that’s possible, the analogous CPP flags are called ALLOW_3D_VISCAH and ALLOW_3D_VISCA4 and are defined in pkg/mom_common/MOM_COMMON_OPTIONS.h.
have a look at the code pkg/mom_common (I just grepped ALLOW_3D to find the relevant places in the code) to see how it works.

I was just wondering if there is a way of prescribing the profile of vertical eddy viscosity (without the use of any boundary layer packages), similar to what we can do to prescribe the profile of vertical diffusivity (diffKrFile) in the model. Thank you so much for your help!
