Hi Oscar,

I couldn't get 0 UTC so I got just before and after. The data is in /work/n02/n02/wmcginty/data_xfer. Please copy it to your own workspace.

Hi Willie,

Thanks a lot. Are these the closest start dumps to 0 UTC available? Is there any analysis close to it? Perhaps the 6 UTC or the 12 UTC? The files that you got are all forecasts and it would be great to start the simulation from an analysis rather than a forecast. If you could have a second look, it would be very nice.

I know the startdump existed at some point in HECToR. If you see Jeffrey's job xegvd (which is the one I'm trying to replicate), it points to a startdump 20081017_qwqg00.T+0 in


I tried to find this directory in ARCHER but it doesn't seem to be there.

Hi Oscar,

I had a good look on ARCHER and couldn't find it there. We didn't transfer old start dumps under $UMDIR in the move from HECToR to ARCHER. Also this file is no longer held at the Met Office as their database is thinned as the files get beyond 5 years old. Sorry I can't be more help.

Hi Willie,

Thanks for trying again. I have transferred the files from your dir to my own workspace.
