oceanspy.compute.salt_budget

oceanspy.compute.salt_budget(od)[source]

Compute terms to close salt budget as explained by [Pie17].

\[\text{tendS = adv_hConvS + adv_vConvS + dif_vConvS + kpp_vConvS + forcS}\]
Parameters used:
rho0
Parameters
od: OceanDataset

oceandataset used to compute

Returns
ds: xarray.Dataset
tendS: Salt total tendency
adv_hConvS: Salt horizontal advective convergence
adv_vConvS: Salt vertical advective convergence
dif_vConvS: Salt vertical diffusive convergence
kpp_vConvS: Salt vertical kpp convergence
forcS: Salt surface forcing

Notes

This function is currently suited for the setup by [AHPM17]:

e.g., z* vertical coordinates, zero explicit diffusive fluxes, KPP.
