This section provides the details in using CLM with the CESM modeling system. Links to descriptions and definitions have been provided in the code below. We use the same conventions used in the CESM documentation as outlined below.
Throughout the document this style is used to indicate shell commands and options, fragments of code, namelist variables, etc. Where examples from an interactive shell session are presented, lines starting with > indicate the shell prompt. A backslash "\" at the end of a line means the line continues onto the next one (as it does in standard UNIX shell). Note that $EDITOR" is used to refer to the text editor of your choice. $EDITOR is a standard UNIX environment variable and should be set on most UNIX systems. Comment lines are signaled with a "#" sign, which is the standard UNIX comment sign as well. $CSMDATA is used to denote the path to the inputdata directory for your CESM data. > This is a shell prompt with commands \ that continues to the following line. > $EDITOR filename # means you are using a text editor to edit "filename" # This is a comment line
