um 7.7/ 7.8 configuration

Reported by: wx019276 Owned by: annette
Component: UM Model Keywords: coupled model, hadgem3
Cc: Platform: HECToR
UM Version: 7.8



I was wondering if it would be possible to have a standard job configuration for 7.8 HADGEM3A GA3.0 but as a fully coupled standard job to run on hector rather than the atmosphere only one that is currently under umui on puma. The resolution I was hoping to use was N96L85 with 1deg ocean resolution.
If there is such a standard job for a later version this might also work - but I couldn't see a standard fully coupled job like this under umui.

Many thanks,

I'll see if I can find a job for you. Failing that we can try to upgrade from the 7.7 frozen GA3.0 job ajtzr (since 7.7 is not available on HECToR).

Hi Ruth,

I have found a job which claims to be a v8.0 version of ajtzr. The job owner gives the caveat though that the job may not have been tested or validated. I wonder if it would be suitable for your purposes anyway though?

I have copied this job to xhdpf, as well as an upgraded version of ajtzr to xhdpg so that you can compare the differences.

The alternative would be to take the HadGEM3-AO GA4.0 frozen job which has been validated at 8.0 - ie:

Let me know which job you would like to go for.

You can see the HadGEM3 reference jobs here:

Fantastic thanks for these options I will look into them and let you know how I get on - I am not in the office between the 9th and 27th of this month so it may be a few weeks before I get back to you if I don't have time to decide this week.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Annette,

I am still considering options on this. I was looking on the umui can you confirm that the only standard coupled HadGem3 job at the moment on hector is xfuz - which is vn 7.6 (GA2.0) and has resolution N96 - I couldn't see the ocean resolution but I am assuming ORCA1?

Hi Ruth,

That's right - the standard coupled job we have for HECToR is based on 7.6 (GA2.0) with N96L85 and ORCA1 ocean and sea-ice. See here for details:

Hi Ruth,

We agreed offline that it would be better for you to run on MONSooN since it supports all UM versions and requires minimal changes from native Met Office jobs.

I assume therefore that you're happy for me to close the ticket (you can reopen it if not). If you have any other issues please raise a new ticket.

Best wishes,
