oceanspy.compute.mooring_volume_transport(od)[source]

Compute horizontal volume flux through a mooring array section (in/outflow). If the array is closed, transport at the first mooring is not computed. Otherwise, transport at both the first and last mooring is not computed. Transport can be computed following two paths, so the dimension path is added.

\[T(mooring, Z, time, path) = T_x + T_y = u \Delta y \Delta z + v \Delta x \Delta z\]
