HI everyone,

I am forcing my model with COADS heat flux, but it seems like the file netheat.cdf (in croco_tools/COADS05) as well at netheat in the .frc file have the wrong sign (it is supposed to show outgoing heat flux, but has positive values in areas where the ocean is actually gaining heat and negative where it is loosing it), so anyone knows if is this corrected somewhere, when running the model or should I change that value?

Actually the model is giving me temperatures about 2 degrees higher and colder in the Brazil and malvinas current respectively, and I think that may be a possible reason.

Seems is better to edit directly the nethead.cdf file. How do you know the sign is wrong? Is it wrong in that region or globally?
