The algebraic epsilonb-equation


INTERFACE:

   subroutine epsbalgebraic(nlev)
DESCRIPTION:

The algebraic equation for $ \epsilon_b$, the molecular rate of destruction of buoyancy variance, see (160), simply assumes a constant time scale ratio $ r=c_b$, see (68). From this assumption, it follows immediately that

$\displaystyle \epsilon_b = \dfrac{1}{c_b} \dfrac{\epsilon}{k} k_b \quad .$ (181)


USES:

  use turbulence,  only:     tke,eps,kb,epsb
  use turbulence,  only:     ctt,epsb_min
 
  IMPLICIT NONE
INPUT PARAMETERS:
 
  number of vertical layers
  integer,  intent(in)                 :: nlev
