RCP8.5 ancillary files on Hector

Reported by: mx020105 Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: ancillary files, CMIP

UM Version: 6.6.3

Description

Dear UM helpdesk,

I am attempting to copy across one of the CMIP5 jobs from Monsoon to Hector. There are many of the RCP8.5 scenario ancillary forcing files which I don't think are available on Hector yet. Is there an easy way for these to be transferred from Monsoon into the ancillary depository on Hector? The relevant job id is xgvka on Hector, which is a copy of xgklb on Monsoon.

Also a much simpler question is whether the setup of xconv has changed for the updated Hector system? It doesn't appear to work any more when I type ~jeff/bin/xconv.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Amanda Maycock

  • Keywords ancillary files, CMIP added
  • UM Version changed from <select version> to 6.6.3

Hi Amanda,

You need to set TARGET_MC=cce in your .profile (it's best if it is set only once). This will help with the xconv problem. See also http://cms.ncas.ac.uk/index.php/component/content/article/22/1583-hectorphase3 for notes on what to do about the about grade to HECToR.

Are the ancillary files in a single directory on MONSooN? Could you let me know where they are?

Regards,

Willie

Hi Willie,

Thanks for your reply.

I think the ancillaries are in the following two directories on MONSooN:
$UMDIR/hg6.6.3/HG2CCL60/
/projects/srsims/scospr/ancil/

I don't have access to MONSooN, so unfortunately I can't tell you whether there are other files in these directories which are not required for this particular job.

Thanks,
Amanda

Hi Amanda,

Thanks. The first directory is already present on HECToR in the same place. I'll get the second copied across.

Note that there is also a HG2CCl60_ancil directory on HECToR in $UMDIR/hg6.6.3. There is a very slight difference between the HG2CCL60 and HG2CCL60_ancil dirs on HECToR. One came with the initial release of HadGEM2 and the _ancil the final release.

Regards,

Willie

Hi Amanda,

Your ancillary files are now on HECToR in /work/n02/n02/wmcginty/srsims. I have kept the same directory structure. Please copy (rsync) this directory to your own workspace as soon as possible.

One file could not be transferred due to lack of permissions: SPARC_rbd_05-00_L38.anc.

Regards,

Willie

Hi Willie,

Thanks a lot. I have copied those files to my area. I'm afraid there are a few more files which are also required. These are:

/projects/ukca/sthard/ancil/volcts_sato02e.dat
/projects/srsims/sthard/ancil

If you could also copy those across when you have chance, then I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Amanda

Hi Amanda,

You data is now ready on HECToR. These are,

  • SPARC_rbd_05-00_L38.anc in /work/n02/n02/wmcginty: this is the one that eluded me - it needs to go in srsims/scospr/ancil/
  • /work/n02/n02/wmcginty/sthard
  • /work/n02/n02/wmcginty/ukca_sthard

Please copy these to your own work space.

Regards,

Willie
