Re: bottom velocity vectors in a z-coordinate model


a simple quick and dirty way to calculate the deepest point of a
variable vel this would be:
let dummy=missing(vel,999999)
let velbottmp=vel*dummy[z=@weq:100]
let velbot=velbottmp[z=@sum]

The problem is that the "weq" has to be close enough to the bottom value
(at least larger). But with very high numbers for the missing value this
becomes less and less sensitive.

Hope that helps.
