Generating start dump from diagnostic output??

Reported by: jonny Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: start dump
Cc: e.hawkins@… Platform:
UM Version: 6.1


I would like to run a continuation of the present day control simulation of a HadGEM1.2 simulation. The catch is that the start dumps for the existing simulation were not transferred from hpcx onto HECTORp3. Obviously it would be good to start this from as spun up a state as possible to minimise spinup time.

So the question is, can we create a start dump from the diagnostic output (monthly say)? And if so, how?

There is utility called pptoanc whose documentation claims it to be able to create an ocean start dump from pp diagnostics. Have a look at as a start.

Hi Grenville,
looks like just the ticket. Do you know where I might find a suitable namelist file?
