TYPE T_Poseidon_Forcing

POSEIDON_TYPES_MODULE Types

Description:

The forcing object holds the required forcing quantities for the ocean model. The supervisor is responsible for loading the fields taux,tauy,woc,qoc,Fsalt,Ftracer,Qrad_net,U3,Qbuoy,Qsfc

The other fields are a hold-over from earlier coupling to the Aries AGCM, and so they are not really needed.
