UKCA tutorial task5

Reported by: s1251469 Owned by: luke
Component: UM Model Keywords: ukca tutorial
Cc: Platform: HECToR
UM Version: 8.2


Thank you for the help on task 5.2 already. I have now managed to successfully get emissions into the ALICE. But i now also seem to have non-zero values in BOB.

When I first realised this, I found a bug in my ukca_chem_strattop.F90 file on lines 144,145. I had ALICE in slot 77 and BOB in slot 76. I corrected that and resubmitted but it didn't seem to correct anything.

Do you have any ideas what silly mistake I may have made?

many thanks

You do have values in 34065, but these are at the 10^(-163) level, i.e. noise. Tracers would appear at the 10^(-6) to 10^(-15) level. Looking in your 34064 tracer (ALICE) the smallest number isn't zero but at 10^(-185).

I'll take a copy of your job and have a look.

O yes. I didn't look at the magnitudes of BOB. Is it possible that my original error in ukca_chem_strattrop.F90 never got properly reinitialised and has left remnants?

It sounds like it should be ok just to carry on with the tutorial?

many thanks,

You are initialising the tracers to zero (option 3) in the STASH initialisation panel, and looking through your code I can't see any major differences from my own worked solutions, other than setting

       REAL, PARAMETER :: C_ALICE      = 1.0000  
       REAL, PARAMETER :: C_BOB        = 1.0000  

in ukca_constants.F90. You set these tracers to 1.0, which is different due to the number of zeros - this may affect the precision of the conversion from mass-mixing-ratio to volume-mixing-ratio (all the other conversion factors are to 4 decimal places). Could you change your ukca_constants.F90 to use 1.0000 and see what affect this has on your results?

That doesn't seem to have changed the output.

Could you fcm commit your changes to your branch - this allows me to take a checkout of it and make some changes in my copy of your job.

Were you able to get this working? If you are still having problems, you may find it easier to re-do the tutorials using the ARCHER versions:

I will close this ticket as it is HECToR specific - please re-open a new ticket for ARCHER work.

Many thanks,
