vertical levels file missing on monsoon?

Reported by: cwright Owned by: um_support
Component: UKCA Keywords: vertical levels namelist, monsoon, archer, nudging
Cc: Platform: MONSooN
UM Version: 6.6.3



I'm trying to transfer a job from Archer to Monsoon, and I'm running into a problem with running the model in (as ever) a UKCA-derived nudged configuration. Specifically, I'm getting the following error message:

Vertical Levels file: /projects/um1/hg6.6.3/ctldata/vert/vertlevs_strat_60
ERROR!!! in reconfiguration in routine Rcf_Read_Namelists
Error Code:- 40
Error Message:- Vertical Levels Namelist file does not exist!
Error generated from processor 0

The specified file does indeed not exist (although the directory does, with many similarly-named files). I don't have permission to write to that directory, so I can't put it there myself. Should I rewrite the nudging code to reference a copy in my home directory, or is there someone I should contact to write the relevant file there?

(for reference, the original job on Archer was xiwxg and the new Monsoon job is xjzia).

Hi Corwin,

This file is already on MONSooN, it's located at $UMDIR/hg6.6.3/HG2CCL60/vert/vertlevs_strat_60. So you should just need to change the path in the UMUI (Atmos → Domain → Vertical).

Hi Ros,

thanks - that fixed that particular problem. I had a few other missing files as well that I was able to locate in either that directory or in the directories listed in the previous post

I think I've hit one that isn't there now though: SPARC_L60_1860clim.anc

By analogy with the other ancillaries in the directory, I think it should be in


but can't see it there. Is it somewhere else, or does it need uploading?

Hi Corwin,

This file is in the L60 directory $UMDIR/hg6.6.3/HG2CCL60/ancil
