Construct and add a new module to Glimmer

  • For this exercise, we will create and add a 1st-order, upwind advection scheme to the model
  • The new module will be used with velocities from the HO model to evolve a simple ice shelf domain (image below) to a steady-state
  • The evolution and steady-state using the 1st-order advection scheme will be compared with those from a higher-order advection scheme
  • For step-by-step notes on adding this module, go to adding dH/dt module.
