Weather and Climate Prediction
Hints and how to's

I prepared a build file for your project at

I call this idealland because I reduced the number of vegetation types to one instead of four. I figure no reason to specify four on an idealized planet.

Create a subdirectory for each case you wish to run in your /home/disk/p/atms380/$LOGNAME/camruns directory. Use the following names: oval_land or open_oval_land, for the two cases I showed in class on Wednesday. I made these cases with the matlab script in /home/disk/p/atms380/scripts/make_tidally_locked_land.m. In that matlab script I explain how you could make your own landmasks as you like. Feel free to do so if you want, or use one or both that I provided for simplicity.

Copy the build script in each freshly made directory. Edit the build script to be sure the case name matches the directory. Run the build script for each case you wish to run and finally submit the run script to the batch queue. For example:

mkdir /home/disk/p/atms380/$LOGNAME/camruns/oval_land
cp /home/disk/p/atms380/scripts/bld-idealland.csh .
(edit the bld-somplanet.csh script)
(When the build script stops, submit the run script to the queue)
qsub run-cam3.csh

Each run will go 10 yr and will take about 12 "wallclock" hours. I'll check that they completed on Sunday night. You can assume they are fine unless you hear from me.

For analysis try using /home/disk/p/atms380/scripts/diags.csh
See the Hints and how to's  for some help on how to run it.

There is also a handy matlab script I made just for your runs. Try it and look at the script for help to use it on your output. It is at /home/disk/p/atms380/scripts/alongequator.m

I may add some more suggestions here later.
