Hi! All, I met the following problem when I run croco for the configuration of the East China Sea. I have applied Sponge for the boundary conditions, however, it seems that it still blow up at the east boundary. I have attached the cppdef.h file, and param.h files. Can anybody help? Thanks a lot in advance, Bei C:\fakepath\param.hC:\fakepath\ description

Hi! Andres, Thank you so much for your kind reply. I have used as the input file, and please see in attachment. the Cu_max is 0.52 which did not exceed one. Look forward to hearing your thoughts, Best, Beiimage descriptionC:\fakepath\ C:\fakepath\param.h C:\fakepath\cppdefs.h

Decrease the time step by half to see if it becomes stable. Cu_max less than 0.8 is a recommendation not a guarantee of stability. What is your grid size?

Thanks a lot for your help! Andres, I have decreased dt from only 900s to 800s, and now it is running ok. My grid size is 216*313*30
