STASHmaster - description for STASHcode?

Reported by: dbcl Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: STASHmaster
Cc: Platform:
UM Version:


Dear Help,

I notice that there is no link on this page to the STASHmaster viewer

Is the viewer now defunct/unsupported?

Can you suggest how I can relate STASH codes to some sort of variable name/variable description (I'm hoping for something more user friendly than just combing through the STASHmaster file)?

I had a brief look on the MetO UM wiki/trac, but didn't find any obvious resource on there either.

Script to check STASH master for STASH code

comment:1 Changed 3 years ago by willie

Hi Doug,

The viewer is no longer supported. I normally use a simple script to scan the STASHmaster file for a particular version. An example script for ARCHER is attached. Usage is below

$ check_stash
 Usage: check_stash <section> <item> <version>
 where section, item is up to three digits e.g.
 check_stash 0 21 7.8

I hope that helps,
