The section setting the case
initialization discussed starting a new case as a branch run or
hybrid run by using data from a previous run. First you need to create
a new case. Assume that $
CCSMROOT is set to /user/ccsmroot and that
EXEROOT is /glade/scratch/$user/EXAMPLE_CASEp. Finally,
assume that the branch or hybrid run is being carried out on NCAR's
IBM system, yellowstone.
> cd /user/ccsmroot/scripts > create_newcase -case ~/cesm/EXAMPLE_CASEp \ -compset B_2000 \ -res 0.9x1.25_gx1v6 \ -mach yellowstone > cd ~/cesm/EXAMPLE_CASEp
For a branch run, modify env_run.xml to branch from EXAMPLE_CASE at year 0001-02-01.
> xmlchange RUN_TYPE=branch > xmlchange RUN_REFCASE=EXAMPLE_CASE > xmlchange RUN_REFDATE=0001-02-01
For a hybrid run, modify env_run.xml to start up from EXAMPLE_CASE at year 0001-02-01.
> xmlchange RUN_TYPE=hybrid > xmlchange RUN_REFCASE=EXAMPLE_CASE > xmlchange RUN_REFDATE=0001-02-01
For a branch run, env_run.xml for EXAMPLE_CASEp should be identical to EXAMPLE_CASE, except for the $RUN_TYPE setting. In addition, any modifications introduced into any of the ~/cesm/EXAMPLE_CASE/user_nl_* files, should be re-introduced into the corresponding files in EXAMPLE_CASEp.
Set up and build the case executable.
> ./cesm_setup > ./EXAMPLE_CASEp.build
Prestage the necessary restart/initial data in $RUNDIR (assumed to be /glade/scratch/$user/EXAMPLE_CASEp/run). Note that /glade/scratch/$user/EXAMPLE_CASEp/run was created during the build. Assume that the restart/initial data is on the NCAR HPSS.
> cd /glade/scratch/$user/EXAMPLE_CASEp/run > hsi -q "cget /CCSM/csm/EXAMPLE_CASE/rest/0001-02-01-00000/*"
It is assumed that you already have a valid load-balanced scenario. Go back to the case directory, set the job to run 12 model months, use an editor to change the time limit in the run file to accommodate a 12-month run, then submit the job.
> cd ~/cesm/EXAMPLE_CASEp > xmlchange STOP_OPTION=nmonths > xmlchange STOP_N=12 > # use an editor to change EXAMPLE_CASE.run "#BSUB -W 1:30" to "#BSUB -W 6:00" > ./EXAMPLE_CASEp.submit
Make sure the run succeeded. Look for the following line at the end of the cpl.log file in your run directory.
(seq_mct_drv): =============== SUCCESSFUL TERMINATION OF CPL7-CCSM ===============
Change the run to a continuation run. Set it to resubmit itself 10 times so that it will run a total of 11 years (including the initial year), then resubmit the case.
> xmlchange CONTINUE_RUN=TRUE > xmlchange RESUMIT=10 > ./EXAMPLE_CASEp.submit
