Turn off runoff in MOM6

Hi all,

Perhaps an obvious question, but I’d like to turn OFF river runoff. Very occasional spurious values are becoming an issue and I’ve almost convinced myself that runoff is not a dominant process in the regions I care about.

Is there are simple way to do this? The documentation is somewhat unclear here.

With a MOM6-SIS2 coupled run, you can zero-out the runoff field, i.e. change the line that looks like the following in the data_table:

"ICE", "runoff", "friver", "./INPUT/RYF.runoff_all.1990_1991.panan01_cropped.nc", "none", 1.0


"ICE", "runoff", "", "", "none", 0.0

Thanks @angus-g that works a treat!
