The utility test group is a general test group for ocean utilities that may create datasets for other test groups to use. It is partly designed to provide provenance for data processing that may be more complex than a single, short script.


The ocean/utility/extrap_woa test case is used to extrapolate WOA 2023 data into ice-shelf cavities and coastal regions, then into land, grounded ice and below bathymetry. It is provided mainly for developers to update for use on future datasets and is not intended for users, so we do not provide full documentation here.
