calving_dt_convergence test group
implements tests for assessing timestep convergence of calving physics
(see calving_dt_convergence). Here,
we describe the shared framework for this test group.
Additionally, the test group has a shared
namelist.landice file with
appropriate namelist options, and a
streams.landice.template file that
input stream uses a template to fill in the appropriate input file
for each mesh available.
defines a procedure for setting up a series of runs with different values for
The list of fractions to use is hardcoded, with a smaller number of values
when using the FO velocity solver, because of their much larger cost.
validate method analyzes the resulting runs and plots the summary.
Note that because the analysis is part of the
validate method, it will
only occur if all runs have completed successfully, and it cannot be run
manually. This can be annoyance for some of the FO velocity tests that take a
long time to run if an error occurs. Given the occasional usage of this test
case, that is fine, but if it becomes a problem, the analysis could be moved
to a separate step.
defines a step for running MALI for each value of
config_adaptive_timestep_calvingCFL_fraction specified. It includes logic
for handling the different meshes, calving, and velocity options in the
namelist and streams files.
