TYPE T_External_Mode



The external mode object is associated with a T_State.

The variable P is the Mass within the water column minus the depth of the ocean (If the ocean were homogeneous and the surface pressure were flat, P would be constant.) Hr, Hur and Hvr are kept for convenience.

We now allow the external mode to be computed on a C-grid even if the internal mode is on the B-grid. The Layout variable is similar to that in T_Poseidon_grid and may take on the same values. If it is 0 then it defaults to the same layout as the grid (You can now see that the layout is not really a property of the grid, but rather of the ocean object itself, and we should move it).
