    1111== Setting up climate means in the UMUI 
    1212 
    13 1. In the UMUI window **//model selection -> atmosphere -> control -> post processing, meaning and dumping -> dumping and meaning//** 
     131. In the UMUI window **//model selection -> atmosphere -> control -> post processing, meaning and dumping -> dumping and meaning//**[[br]] 
    1414 For 360 day climate runs:[[br]] 
    1515 * set `regular frequency dumps with possible meaning sequence`. 
     
    2020 * the `period length`, which will depend on the dumping frequency set. If the dumping frequency is every 10 days then for monthly, seasonal and yearly means use 3, 3 and 4 (3x10day, 3x30days and 4x90days). For Gregorian-calendar climate means, the only periods available are months, seasons and years. It is not compulsory to choose all 3 periods. Do not select zonal-mean prints with Gregorian means, as the numbers may be incorrect, although the option does work. 
    2121     
    22 3. Setup STASH 
    23     Any diagnostic can have any number of processes applied to it at a frequency of one time step to the dump frequency. The value in the dump can be further meaned over a different meaning period. To use climate meaning you will need to specify the diagnostic in STASH and for each diagnostic selected 
    24     - set up the time profile with the following options 
    25     specify time mean 
    26     specify the sampling frequency, this is how often you want to take a sample of the diagnostic for meaning. 
    27     specify the output times, this is how often the diagnostic is produced. 
    28     - set up the usage profile 
    29     specify that you want to mean over a meaning period in addition to any meaning over a dump frequency by selecting 
    30     dump store with climate mean tag 
    31     specify which of the (up to 4 ) meaning periods the diagnostic should be meaned over 
     223. Setup STASH [[br]] 
     23 Any diagnostic can have any number of processes applied to it at a frequency of one time step to the dump frequency. The value in the dump can be further meaned over a different meaning period. To use climate meaning you will need to specify the diagnostic in STASH and for each diagnostic selected 
     24 * set up the `time profile` with the following options:[[br]] 
     25  specify `time mean` [[br]] 
     26  specify the `sampling frequency`, this is how often you want to take a sample of the diagnostic for meaning. [[br]] 
     27  specify the `output times`, this is how often the diagnostic is produced. 
     28 * set up the `usage profile`[[br]] 
     29  specify that you want to mean over a meaning period in addition to any meaning over a dump frequency by selecting `Dump store with climate mean TAG` [[br]] 
     30  specify which of the (up to 4 ) meaning periods the diagnostic should be meaned over 
    3231 
    33     The climate meaning system is called only at the end of a dump period; therefore it usually makes sense that the STASH output time matches the dumping period exactly - a warning will be given if a climate meaned diagnostic is attached to a time profile that does not match the dumping period.

    3937 
    40 Restart dumps have file names of the form: $RUNID.daj34e0 
    41 Model diagnostic monthly files have names of the form: $RUNID.paj3may

     39Model diagnostic monthly files have names of the form: `$RUNID.paj3may`

    43 In general restart dumps are deleted when a new one is produced. This option is set via the UMUI in window 
    44 model selection -> sub model independent -> post processing -> main switch 
    45 Set automatic post processing required to "yes" 
    46 Select delete superseded restart dumps

     43 * Select `delete superseded restart dumps`

    48 When climate meaning is enabled partial sum mean dumps are produced which have names like $RUNID.apstmp1 (for atmospheric fields). These files are in temporary directories which should be deleted automatically at the end of a run but if the run stops part way through they should get copied to a permanent directory.

    50 At the end of every period1 climate meaning time length the completed period 1 partial sum dump is copied to the period 2 partial dump which has file name like $RUNID.a_s2a ( for atmospheric fields). These files are not routinely removed as they are in permanent directories.

    52 The climate mean files have names of the form: 
    53 $RUNID.mt...    10 day means 
    54 $RUNID.mm..     monthly means 
    55 $RUNID.ms..     seasonal means 
    56 $RUNID.my..     yearly means 
    57 $RUNID.m1..     period 1 means if they are not one of the above
