csim4_8_15 was used in CCSM versions ccsm3_0_beta08 and earlier.

csim4_8_16 was used in CCSM versions ccsm3_0_beta09 and later.

Note that in the vector version of the ice model, the method of
indexing the conversion factors has been replaced by a less
error prone method. This is in versions csim5_0_0 and later.

Here are the variables affected and the factors needed to correct the
fields:

Index Number | Variable Name | Erroneous Conversion Factor | Correct Factor |
---|---|---|---|

35 | Qref | mps_to_cmpdy/dt | kg_to_g |

36 | growb | mps_to_cmpdy/rhoi | mps_to_cmpdy/dt |

37 | frazil | mps_to_cmpdy/dt | mps_to_cmpdy/rhoi |

41 | meltl | secday | mps_to_cmpdy/dt |

43 | Fsalt_aice | mps_to_cmpdy/rhofresh | secday |

45 | Fresh_aice | 1 | mps_to_cmpdy/rhofresh |

58 | strength | secday*c100 | 1 |

61 | opening | 1 | secday*c100 |

63 | sig2 | mps_to_cmpdy | 1 |

65 | dvidtd | secday*c100 | mps_to_cmpdy |

67 | daidtd | 1 | secday*c100 |

To correct the field, multiply the bad field by the correct factor and divide by the erroneous factor.
