ocean only Philips_2layer

Hello,

Is there a way where we can run the ocean only Philips two layer simulation without the forcing in the interface. i.e with no mass transfer between the layers?

Thank you!

If you change the value of SPONGE in your MOM_input file (or other MOM input file as specified in your input.nml file) to `SPONGE = False`, it will eliminate the forcing of the zonal mean toward the specified state. At that point, the Phillips model will become a spin-down problem, so you might also want to do something else to force it, like adding wind forcing.

You can also specify that this is a completely adiabatic layered-mode configuration with no exchanges between layers by setting `ADIABATIC = True`, although this will also disable some diagnostics, so you might need to modify your diag_table as well.
