This parameter can be set either to FARGO or to STANDARD to define which kind of azimuthal advection algorithm has to be used. In the STANDARD case, the azimuthal advection is performed in a standard way, and the CFL criterion includes the full azimuthal velocity. In the FARGO case, the FARGO algorithm described in Masset (2000) is applied, which relieves the CFL condition and allows a much larger time step and a faster calculation. The Transport parameter defaults to FARGO. It can be set to STANDARD for comparison and benchmarking purposes.
