planar_convergence test group
implements convergence studies on the full globe. Currently, the only test case
is the advection of a cosine bell.
test performs a series of 24-day runs that advect a Gaussian-shaped tracer blob
across the periodic boundaries and back to its original location. The
resolution of the sphere varies (by default, between 2 and 32 km). Advected
results are compared with a known exact solution to determine the rate of
convergence. See horizontal_advection.

defines a step for setting up the mesh and initial state for each test case
with a tracer distributed in a Gaussian shape.
defines a step for running MPAS-Ocean from the initial condition produced in
initial_state step. The time step is determined from the resolution
based on the
dt_1km config option. Other namelist options are taken
from the test case’s
defines a step for computing the RMSE (root-mean-squared error) for the results
at each resolution and plotting them in
