Start dumps on HECToR

Description

Hi,

I have a number of start dumps that I copied across from HPCx to a personal directory on HECToR. Is this still the accepted way to run on HECToR, i.e. I assume a communal directory for start dumps does not exist on HECToR at this point?

Thanks,
Gerry

Gerry,
There is a directory of start dumps on HECToR: /work/n02/n02/hum/dumps/weather. This currently has one subdirectory global with one start dump in it. If you need specific global start dumps there, let me know and I will transfer them.

We also have some standard UMUI jobs for UM6.1 on HECToR. Job xdgn is a nested LAM series (Global, 12km, 4km) and job xdke is a start dump creator from ECMWF GRIB data. The nested LAM series is currently being fine tuned.

Regards,
Willie

Hi Willie,

thanks for your swift reply. I could very much be doing with a global start dump for 0000UTC 31st July, 2006 (associated with AMMA work). If you can transfer that across I would be very grateful. In the future, I will let you know should I need any further start dumps.

Thanks,
Gerry

Gerry,
I have placed two start dumps in /work/n02/n02/hum/vn6.1/dumps/weather/global/, in a slight change of location. These have been obtained from the Met Office 5 year archive and are the closest I can get to what you wanted. I have reconfigured them with UM6.1 on HECToR.

If you need any more please let me know.

Regards,
Willie

Hi Willie,

regarding those start dumps, do you know if there are any earlier ones, even if they are from 30th July? I am trying to model at storm at 13UTC on the 31st July at 1km resolution. If I use the current start dumps (which are 0900UTC 31st) I don't think that will be enough time to spin up through global → 12km → 4km →1km.

Thanks,
Gerry

Gerry,
I am in the process of getting you the data for 30th July. Unfortunately HECToR has gone down suddenly. If it is back up soon I will be able to complete this afternoon, otherwise it will be completed on 14th Oct as I am on "holiday" (i.e. study for an exam) next week. I hope this is not too inconvenient.
Regards,
Willie

Willie,

hope HECToR gets back up in time in that case. No worries if not. Have a good holiday.
