Hello everyone,

i want to create a simple model of stratified fluid in a rotating
system of reference.

the fluid is made of two layers of depth, at rest, H1 and H2 and
h1 and h2 are displacements, rispectively, of the two layers. if

i want barotropic mode i set displacements of the layers proportional to rest
depths, as initial condition.

for baroclinic mode, instead, is it correct to set, for example,

h1=0 and
