I am working on stably stratified environmental flows. I have to define two density profile which varying with depth. Such as one profile is from h to h-b and another profile is from h-b to 0. Kindly suggest me the way to perform it. Thank you.

I have no idea what h and h-b means.

The density is caused by a combination of temperature, pressure and possibly additional stuff (eg salt content). You have to define the temperature, pressure and/or stuff (salt) values and you will get your density profile.

thank you ghorrocks for your reply. I know the profile of density. How ever it is depth dependent. For instance, there is two layer of density and an interface one is upto 0 to H-h and another is from H-h to H, where H is depth of domain. Density is a function of temperature. I have to define this profile with CEL during initialization, kindly suggest me in this regard. Thank you.

If density is a function of temperature only and you know the density then you know the temperature as well. So then you can specify the temperature initial condition, and set density to be a the function of temperature.

Have a look at the CEL expressions for writing functions. And set the density to be the function of temperature and there you have it.
