Hi guys, my question is - does OceanTides force model have to be reloaded or cleared somehow before it is used with different parameters? I’m trying to observe impact of different degrees and orders of the tide model on tidal acceleration. So I set say 10 harmonics to take into account and compute oceanTides.acceleration() for some predefined states. It works fine. Then I change to 20 harmonics (I use python wrapper and Jupyter notebook) but acceleration doesn’t change at all. If I clear everything by restarting the kernel and use 20 harmonics for the first try, I get new values (different from the case of 10 = 20 harmonics from earlier). Setup and calculation is within a function, I just call it with different parameters. I suspect that the model somehow gets stuck since it doesn’t react to parameter changing but reloads after complete clearing. I would greatly appreciate an explanation of this situation and how to fix it.
Also, could you please give some details about the meaning and impact of parameters step ( DEFAULT_STEP=600.0 sec) and nbPoints (DEFAULT_POINTS=12) in solid and ocean tide models?
More points and shorter time step give more precise results?
