New ice run
I've completed a run with the new bathymetry and wind forcing which includes Quikscat data. Considerably less ice forms, which is good, but there's still too much, which is bad.
The ice seems to be difficult to blow away from the coast. It may be that having so few grid points in some of the tighter parts of the lake (like the western arm) make it difficult for the ice to get blown out.
I think a large part of the problem is that I'm using the MODIS imagery to estimate clouds, and my algorithm does not distinguish between clouds and ice. Therefore, when there is ice in the imagery, it automatically cuts down on the amount of SHF the surface receives. The model, of course, then applies an albedo to this artificially reduced radiation, and results in even less heat entering the system.
