soil and veg ancillaries for v4.5 HadRM3

Reported by: iamack Owned by: grenville
Component: UM Model Keywords: ancillaries LAM HadRM3
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 4.5



I'd like to create soil and vegetation ancillary files on a LAM grid for use with v4.5 HadRM3. I understand that the soil (and vegetation?) files generated by the NCAS ancillary file web service are not suitable for the v4.5 UM. Can you advise on the best way of creating the ancillaries?

The current ancillary file service can produce files for vn4.5, however, it doesn't produce some files for the old hydrology scheme. Please try it, remembering to specify the origin row as North on the first screen.

Hi Grenville

I created soil and veg ancillary files for my LAM accepting all the default settings on the relevant panel of the web interface. The three vegetation ancillary files created contain quite different fields from the single global one I am currently using, and don't show much correspondence with the veg ancillary options available in the umui for vn4.5 UM using <5A> MOSES-1. The new soil ancillary is more similar to my current one, but using it in a reconfiguration fails; I think because the new file doesn't contain a 'VOL SMC at FIELD CAP' field.

My reconfiguration job is xerxc on the puma umui. The ancillary files I created are in /export/puma/data-01/ancil/vegsoil_eu.1266231106 on puma. The job output is on our local machine, but I can make it available if you wish to see it.
