Dear Colleagues,

I would like to know if there are any using rules for use_adaptive_time_step? And when can we set this as true or false?

Many thanks,
If you haven't done so already, I would recommend reading the section on Adaptive Time-stepping in chapter 5 of our User's Guide. If you are using the ndown option, you can use adaptive time stepping, but must set ‘step_to_output_time = .true.’ We recently found that the model code does not support using adaptive time stepping with idealized cases.
