History Files

Description

Hi,

Could I ask a question about the role of history files in the UM?

If I run an NRUN simulation I get an error unless a history (.phist) file is in the working directory, but if this is a "new" model run I don't see why it expects any history?

The model runs fine if I copy over a history file from a different simulation, but I can't work out if it is actually using data from this file or if it just needs to be there for the model to work?

For interest, an example simulation is: xjjoh. I just need monthly mean output from the model, not any running means.

Could you possibly explain what a history file is for and why an NRUN would expect it to exist?

Thanks for your help,
Kirsty

Hi Kirsty,

History files are discussed in the UM user guide. They are for restarting the UM.

I hope that helps.

Regards

Willie
