GC2 standard job on Archer

Reported by: wx019276 Owned by: annette
Component: UM Model Keywords: GC2 porting
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 8.4



I have been looking on the umui for a standard GC2 configuration for archer at version 8.4 which the documentation suggests archer supports. I have tried copying some other jobs but without success. Ideally I would like to copy a standard job but I can't find a standard job for GC2 (8.4) and I was wondering if you knew if there was a standard version that I could use? I have previously been using this version of the model on MONSooN but I would like to use it on archer instead.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

We have UM 8.4 installed on ARCHER - you can port your MONSooN job to ARCHER (make the usual changes to the UMUI) and it should work (I'm sure there will be a little tweaking needed - we can help there).

You'll need to copy over start data etc from MONSooN to ARCHER.

Hi Ruth,

There is a standard GC2 job for Archer 'xkcfe'. This is at UM vn8.6 and N96 atmosphere with ORCA025 NEMO-CICE. There are also N216 and N512 versions that have been ported I believe.

If you just want to run the same job as you have on MONSooN, then, as Grenville mentioned, porting your job might be best. Let us know if this is what you want to do as we can advise.

Best wishes,

Hi Annette,

Thanks I will have a look at the xkcfe job it sounds like it should be ok. As far as understand it 8.4 and 8.6 are essentially the same scientifically so it shouldn't make too much difference - though of course I will need to check this.

Porting my job from monsoon will be a time consuming exercise as so many things would need to be changed and if there is something already there then it would make more sense to use that.

I will let you know how I get on.

Hi Ruth,

OK great.

We do have instructions on porting jobs from MONSooN to Archer if you decide to go down that road in the end:
