When CLIMATOLOGY is not defined in ROMS cppedefs.h, you don't need to provide climatology file for ROMS run.
Thus, there is no need to copy/sftp the monthly clim file in prepare-ROMS.sh..
That can save A LITTLE BIT of time in coupler.. WE CARE ABOUT EVEN 1 SECOND!!!

prepareROMS-NP6.sh
echo "BryFile = $BryFile"
 
 if [ $BryFile = WOA01_month ]; then
 echo "Monthly World Ocean Atlas Climatology!"
  tindx=`expr $JD \/ 30 + 1`
   if [ $tindx -eq 13 ]; then
      tindx=12
   echo "time index corrected: 13 --> 12 ***"
   fi
   echo "time index ==> $tindx ***"
  tindxm=`expr $tindx - 1`
