Useful diagnostics for use with Oceananigans. Mostly KernelComputedFields .

To add from github:

julia> using Pkg

julia> Pkg.add(url="https://github.com/tomchor/Oceanostics.jl.git")


  • Not every kernel has been thoroughly tested.
  • Kernels are written very generally since most uses of averages, etc. do not assume any specific kind of averaging procedure. Chances are it "wastes" computations for a given specific application.

Notes on notation and usage

For now I'm assuming that lowercase variables are pertubations around a mean and uppercase variables are the mean (any kind of mean or even background fields). So, for example, turbulent kinetic energy is calculated as (the following is a pseudo-code):

tke(u, v, w) = 1/2*(u^2 + v^2 + w^2)

And it is up to the user to make sure that the function is called with the perturbations (to actually get turbulent kinetic energy), or the full velocity fields if the desired output is total kinetic energy. So for turbulent kinetic energy one might call the function as

U = AveragedField(model.velocities.u, dims=(1, 2))
V = AveragedField(model.velocities.v, dims=(1, 2))
TKE = tke(model.velocities.u-U, model.velocities.v-V, model.velocities.w)
