basis file for 1km run on HECToR

Reported by: anmcr Owned by: willie
Component: UM Mesoscale Keywords: 1km
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 6.1



I want to run the UM at ~1km resolution on HECToR at version 6.1 or above. Do you have a basis file for this?

Stuart Webster had given me a basis file for a job running on the Met Office supercomputer, but I think there can be problems running this on HECToR. Also, there are a number of files which are called which I don't have, such as preSTASHmaster files. I know there is also information / basis files on the MetOffice? External Collaboration website, but again they are for running on the Met Office computer.

Any advice or help would be very much appreciated.

Hi Andrew,

You could try UMUI user willie, job xeqog. You may need to run this with the executable at /work/n02/n02/grenvill/xeaoj/bin/1.5km.exe

I hope that helps.

Dear Willie,

Thanks for your help.

What I am doing is examining the sensitivity to model resolution of simulating Antarctic extreme wind events. So far I have run the model at global, 12km, and 4km resolutions. This was using vn6.1. I need a final job of 1-1.5 km to complete the series.

The job you recommended was vn7.1 (I had stated vn6.1 or above). However, on closer thought I should try to get a 6.1 version working first otherwise I would have to re-do all my other runs.

As I mentioned I have a vn6.1 job at 1km from Stuart Webster. If you don't have a vn6.1 job then I think I would like to try and get this job working.

This came as 3 basis files for build, reconfiguration, and run. The 'build' job is xdvhe. There is an error when I try to process it. Could you please have a look and see if it is fixable?

Hi Andrew,

I have had a look at your job and there are indeed a lot of changes needed. I have found that Kirsty Hanley has a UM6.1 model running at 1km. The username is swr05keh and the job is xdsxd. This is already running on HECToR, so the changes are minimal, just setting the domain really. If this doesn't do the job, I will have another look at Stuart Webster's bases.
