Reconfiguration problems for an atmospheric tracer in the AQUM

Reported by: RPope Owned by: willie
Component: UM Model Keywords: tracer, initialisation
Cc: nicholas.savage@… Platform: MONSooN
UM Version: 8.2


I'm trying a version of the AQUM with an atmospheric tracer in it for 2008. The model compiles ok, but the Reconfiguration (RCF) fails (starting on 26th Dec 2007 at 12pm). This is job xjkne. However, when I did the reconfiguration for my 2006 run, starting on 26th Dec 2005 at 12pm, it was successful and this year with the tracer has now completed. The error for the xjkne (2008) is in file

xjkne000.xjkne.d14034.t144012.rcf.leave in /home/ripope/output on MONSOON. The error itself is:

???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!! ERROR ???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!?
? Error in routine: Rcf_Set_Data_Source
? Error Code: 30
? Error Message: Section 33 Item 1 : Required field is not in input dump!
? Error generated from processor: 0
? This run generated 0 warnings

I thought the RCF was meant to run the model for a short period on the existing start dump and then find the new fields needed in the new generated start dump, so that the N run will work with initialised fields.

Many tanks,

Hi Richard,

there is no ATM tracer 1 (sec 33, item 1) in the start dump. You need to specify how this is to be created in the STASH > Initialisation of user prognostics page, right at the bottom of the table.
