UM docs for v8.5

Reported by: swr04ojb Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 8.5



I was just wondering where I should be looking for documentation for the code in UM v8.5? I've looked in my build/ folder on ARCHER at the fortran code and found that it contains some commenting, but not sufficient to be able to understand what particular input variables are. Does some documentation get stripped out when the code is copied across? If so, should I be looking elsewhere, say on PUMA? Or is there a web-service for this sort of thing?

kind regards,

Hi Oliver,

There are some source code browsers at our web site

There is an overview of the UM in the UM Users Guide at and some of the other documents discuss specific aspects such as STASH.

I hope that helps.

Hi Willie,

I thought I'd replied to this, but it seems not to have logged —

when I try to follow that link I'm asked to enter a CMS login username and password (even though I'm already signed in to the CMS wiki). I've tried to use my username (swr04ojb) with a selection of passwords that I think it *might* be, butit doesn't let me in. Any suggestions? Should it be the same username/password combo as I use to sign-in to this ncas-helpdesk?

kind regards,

Just a note for others reading this. Your CMS Helpdesk username/password will give you access to both the code browsers and Met Office documents. Even if already logged into the CMS wiki, you will be prompted to re-enter your details, since these documents are held under a separate system.
