gen_domain to create a domain file for datm from a mapping file. The domai file is then used by BOTH datm AND CLM to define the grid and land-mask. The general data flow is shown in two figures. Figure 2-3 shows the general flow for a general global case (or for a regional grid that DOES include ocean). Figure 2-4 shows the use of mknoocnmap.pl (see the Section called Using mknocnmap.pl to create grid and maps for single-point regional grids) to create a regional or single-point map file that is then run through gen_domain to create the domain file for it. As stated before Figure 2-2 is the legend for both of these figures. See the mapping/gen_domain_files/README file for more help on gen_domain.
Here we create domain files for a regular global domain.the Section called Creating mapping files that mksurfdata_map will use). Next we create domain files for a single-point or regional domain.
