Model output files

In this section, we often refer to 'model dates' and 'model times' as corresponding to actual dates and times in the real world. This is only true if the model initial time was set appropriately and only has true meaning if the model is forced by actual observed forcing fields with proper dates associated with them. Otherwise, 'model time' simply refers to the model's internal calendar.
