Heating rate diagnostics

Reported by: ab728 Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: STASH, diagnostics

UM Version: 7.3



I need to output the net diabatic heating rate. Is there an appropriate diagnostic for this? Alternatively, a list of contributing heating rates would be helpful.

Many thanks,

Hi Tara,

There is a list of the default diagnostics for each UM version held in a maser STASH file. On puma the vn7.3 file is located here:


By browsing this file, you can see that there are a few diagnostics with "heating" in the name.

Some diagnostics have a description associated with them, which can be viewed in the STASH panel of the UMUI:

  • Go to 'Atmosphere → STASH → STASH specification of diagnostic requirements'
  • Select 'Diagnostics' and 'Load new diagnostics'.
  • Browse to the diagnostic of interest.
  • If it has a 'Help' listing, double click to view the information.

For more information you may need to look at the UM documentation for the scientific scheme:

We can only really help with technical aspects of running the model. But you can try asking colleagues who are UM users, or post to the Met Office UM collaboration newsgroup if you are registered with the collaboration wiki
