mpas_tools.ocean.inject_meshDensity.inject_planar_meshDensity(cellWidth, x, y, mesh_filename)[source]

Add a meshDensity field into a planar MPAS mesh. The mesh density is defined as:

meshDensity = (minCellWidth / cellWidth)**4

  • cellWidth (ndarray) – m x n array of cell width in km

  • x (ndarray) – Planar coordinates in meters

  • y (ndarray) – Planar coordinates in meters

  • mesh_filename (str) – The mesh file to add meshDensity to
