6.1 Diagnostic Printouts

Diagnostic output to the log files consists of instantaneous hemispheric mean fields at a user selected frequency. Included is the model step number, the date (yyyymmdd, where yyyy is the year, mm the month, and dd the day), along with the renormalization factors for the conservation of ice after minimum values are removed. Then come a list of fields with max values (max cH) and hemispheric area weighted (arwt) values. The frequency of diagnostic output can be varied: see the CSIM User's Guide Version 4.
