[mesa-users] Too much mesh points

hi ehsan,

as an experiment try setting max_dq = 1/(desired number of cells) 
and removing all the customized fine-grain mesh controls being set.
does this run to completion?

Life goes pretty happy in the “lower” end, while on the “upper” end, some of my models fail due to the number of mesh exceeding the limit max_allowed_nz=20,000. This happens after ~370 steps, when centre_h1~0.69.

I need around 3,000 mesh points across my model. For that purpose, I customise the mesh distribution, and put quite some weight around the convective and overshooting boundaries. That is when the problems begin, as soon as the mu-gradient layers develop.
