LTMI-mixing README============================================= The code used by Sherwood et al. (2014, Nature) to calculate the parameter D is contained here, named get_all_w.pro. This code requires only the omega field (vertical pressure velocity) but has options to compute humidity fluxes as well, in which case specific humidity data are also needed. If anyone successfully translates this into other languages (e.g. python) let me know (at firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will add it to this repository. The .save file in this directory is a land-sea mask required by the routine. Input Frequency Variable CMOR labels Unit monthly omega wap [hPa/day] Output This function calculates Deep mixing parameter D (no unit) Note: You have to modify the code either to print the value or to return the value to your main program. The definition of D = <dH(d)H(-w1)>/<-w2H(-w2)> (Sherwood et al., 2014). With the sample CanAM4 data provided, D is 0.522303. Note these codes are also provided directly on the Author's web site since mid-2014. Jul/28/2017
