Initial conditions for temperature and salinity

    Hydrological fields are to be used to initialize the models:

    These are the mean winter fields of the MED4 Data base. These data are described in MODB gridded data . Please remember that these date are given on the grid specified in the MODB data base, and not on the grid specified in the MEDMEX output specifications. For initializing your model, please simply interpolate T,S data onto your grid and then run a diagnostic adjustment from rest with fixed T,S data for 3 days to adjust pressure and velocity fields. Then start the simulation at January first.
