Barotropic Ocean Gyre In Cartesian Coordinates

This example experiment demonstrates using the MITgcm to simulate a Barotropic, wind-forced, ocean gyre circulation. The experiment is a numerical rendition of the gyre circulation problem similar to the problems described analytically by Stommel in 1966 [49] and numerically in Holland et. al
