Start dump request

I was involved in a field campaign in October 2008 in the Irminger Sea and I'm now getting down to some modeling of some of the cases we studied during the cruise. I therefor would like to request the global start dumps for all of October 2008 to be put on to HECTOR so I can use them for my runs. Would this be possible?

Thanks, all the best

Hi Benjamin,

It will take about one week to get this amount of data from the Met Office. Do you really need all days, or are there specific date and times you need immediately?

Hi Willie,

I probably wont start my runs for at least a week anyway as I'm new to the UM and will need to get familiar with it first. I think I'd like all the days eventually as I'm still not entirely sure which of the events we sampled will be the best cases. I could probably give you a list if getting all the days is an issue?

Hi Benjamin,

No problem, just thought I'd make you aware of the timescales. I will get these as soon as HECTOR is back up.

Hi Benjamin,

Your start dumps are now available on HECToR under $UMDIR/vn6.1/dumps/weather/raw_dumps.

Ninety three dumps were transferred in 20 days. The link (and HECToR) seemed particularly fragile.
