It's this field static? If it is, how can I modify for making it evolves with time?
My problem is the seaice, wich obviusly evolves with time, but not the LAND USE CATEGORY wich sucks.
Thank you very much
Yes, LU_INDEX is a static field that is provided to the model through the geogrid program. I believe if you are using sea ice that evolves over time, it will update the area of seaice, which shouldn't be affected by the landuse type, as seaice is always a water point.
