The first month of data (January Year 0) should be discarded, as September initial conditions were incorrectly used instead of January initial conditions. The model stabilizes by Feburary Year 0.

In the mass store data transfer process some 2X daily files (h3) were incompletely written to the mass store, resulting in files that fully or partially contain 0's. The files are not recoverable. The following files are known to have this problem:
The parts of these files that are not filled with 0's can be used.

atmospheric history file nomenclature: "h0" in the file name (ex. denotes monthly data, "h1" denotes daily data, "h2" denotes 4X daily data, "h3" denotes 2X daily data.
