UM vn 4.5 SST ancil for 2000s ?

Reported by: alindfor Owned by: lois
Component: UM Model Keywords: SST, ancil
Cc: mjm@… Platform:
UM Version: 4.5



I am running a UM4.5 (HadAM3) experiment for the 2000s, and would for that need an ancillary file for the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) for recent years. The current SST ancil I have available for my experiment (name: qrsst_amip2) only covers the years up to 1996.

Do you know if such an ancil is available? In case yes, where can I find it?

Thankful for all help.

we don't have a vast selection of pre-made SST files. However there are some for vn4.5 on HECToR in the directory
There, for example, is a file
which must have come from the Met Office, many many years ago. Because we don't have the metadata which enables us to know what was the dataset used for creating these ancillary files it is hard to know the provenance of the data. I did get a copy of the abuih job from the Met Office UMUI and this is in xeogh on PUMA, but I am not sure that this will help you understand where this SST data came from.

You may be able to use the old Central Ancillary File program to create something if this has the base data you need. Or we may have to ask the Met Office what they have available.
