I want to run MPAS for a long period, but it takes too much time. The time step may waste too many resources. For instance, with the 60-3km mesh, the time_step must setup to about 18s, but the resolution of most areas is about 50-60km, this area needn't such short time step. If there exist any option automatically change the time step with the resolution just like WRF option(e.g. use_adaptive_time_step )? Or any other advice for running efficiency is also welcome.
