Four Layer Baroclinic Ocean Gyre In Spherical Coordinates

This document describes an example experiment using MITgcm to simulate a baroclinic ocean gyre in spherical polar coordinates. The barotropic example experiment in section 3.8 illustrated how to configure the code for a single layer simulation in a Cartesian grid. In this example a similar physical problem is simulated, but the code is now configured for four layers and in a spherical polar coordinate system.
