running with L140 / hand edit problem?

Dear Willie,

I've been running a quite comprehensive set of sensitivity experiments using the vn7.6 model at 4 km resolution for a case study over a region of Antarctica. The final experiment is to double the vertical resolution from L70 to L140. The job id is xhawj.

I got quite a lot of help from Stuart Webster at the MetOffice?. The main steps being to write a branch ( and to include a hand edit (~anmcr/hand_edits/v220_modelf_new_RHcrit.ed).

However, I can't get the model to reconfigure as it produces the following error


ERROR!!! in reconfiguration in routine Rcf_Readnl_Vertical

Error Code:- 50

Error Message:- Mismatch in number of model levels and number of eta_theta values

Error generated from processor 0


which comes from the routine ~src/utility/qxreconf/rcf_readnl_vertical_mod.F90, which is one of the routines I modified in my branch.

I added a few print statements to the branch to check this, which gave the following output

anmcr@hector-xe6-1:~/um/umui_out> grep 'ANMCR01' xhawj000.xhawj.d13087.t140124.rcf.leave

ANMCR01: about to test for mismatch in model levels / eta_theta values

ANMCR01: levels_theta = 141

ANMCR01: Output_Grid % model_levels + 1 = 101


which suggests that the hand edit isn’t being read or used.

Do you think this is the case?

I've been stuck on this for a while now so any help would be very much appreciated.

Dear Willie,

Please close this ticket.

I managed to get it working by editing the RECONA and SIZES scripts.
