atmos_main error after changing start time using UM10.7

Reported by: zliu Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: meaning
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 10.7



I am running GA7.1 simulations with UM10.7. The suite id is u-bh862 copied from u-bh589. Suite u-bh589 can run successfully starting from 19810901 with start dump on 01/09/1981. But the u-bh862 crash after I only change the start time to 01/09/1992. I also tried change start dump on 01/09/1988, the simulation still crashed. It failed with information as follows under ~/work/cylc-run/u-bh862/log/job/19920901T0000Z/atmos_main

Error message: Error in buffin errorCode= 0.00 len=0/1536
Error message: ACUMPS1: Partial sum file inconsistent. See Output

I have found two related ticket before, #2425 and #2163. I have included the branch to fix the gregorian climate meanings. Because of my UM version 10.7, I think I cannot use the way in #2163 based on information from website The website told me there is a bug in the UM between UM10.3 and UM10.9.

Could you please help me to solve this issue. Thanks.

Best regards,

I got an update. I change the start dump to /work/n02/n02/nfreyche/STARTDUMP/ab475a.da20121201_00. Then it seems to me the model works with start date 01/12/1992 as the model has run about ten hours.
The size of ab475a.da20121201_00 is 3.5G, which is larger than the file ab357a.da19810901_00 (2.8G) and ab642a.da19880901_00 (3.3G) I used before under /home/n02/n02/zliu/work/INPUTFILES/initial_conditions. I am not sure whether this is the problem.
Could you please create a dump file similar to ab475a.da20121201_00 but with date 01/09/1992. If not possible with this particular year, please create a start dump with the earliest year and date 01/09. I cannot use grib as start dump as my UM version is 10.7. Thanks

Hi Zhen,

I have started to look at u-bh862. Could you let me have read permission on /work/n02/n02/zliu/INPUTFILES/ERA_SEAICE.anc please. If you,

chmod 644 /work/n02/n02/zliu/INPUTFILES/*

this will catch any other input file that may be necessary. Thanks.

Hi Willie,

Thanks for your message. I have changed the permission.

Hi Zhen,

If you change the model basis time, then you need to change the mean reference time to match, otherwise you will be attempting to compute a mean over a 10 year period. See the document C05 "Control of Means calculation".

If you change the mean reference time (um → namel;ist → Model Input and Output → Dumping and Meaning) so that the year is 1992, it will then work as expected.

Hi Willie,

I still get a question. If it is the problem of year in the reference time, why startdump ab475a.da20121201_00 works with the reference time (01/12/1981) I used.
I am wondering whether it is the problem of month and day in the date rather than the year.
