NICAM (NICAM source code)

A. 3 Compiling NICAM

A. 3. 1 Configuration of Mkinclude

  % cd NICAM/
  % ln -s Mkinclude.[your_environment] Mkinclude

If you use NICAM on Linux PC, type as follows:

 % ln -s Mkinclude.Linux Mkinclude

Change 'TOPPATH' in Mkinclude. 'TOPPATH' is the directory name which contains the NICAM source code. You can use your favorite editor, e.g., vi, emacs, to edit Mkcinlude.

 % vi Mkinclude.[your_environment]

Hereafter, ${TOPPATH} in this tutorial means TOPPATH in Mkinclude

A. 3. 2 Compiling NICAM

% make >& make.log

After compiling, please check ${TOPPATH}/bin.

% ls bin/

On ES2, when running ${TOPPATH}/bin/*, you must set F_RECLUNIT as environment variable:

 % setenv F_RECLUNIT BYTE

Creating Information File for Managing Region and Processes

B. mnginfo

B. 1 Edit mkmnginfo.cnf

   % cd ~/test/nicam_gl05_rl00/mnginfo/
   % vi mkmnginfo.cnf

&MKMNGINFO_CNF

   rlevel       = 0,
   prc_num      = 5,
   output_fname = './data/rl00-prc05.info',

For example, we set "rlevel-0 with 5 processes" above. In mkmnginfo.cnf, " output_fname = 'rl00-prc05.info' " means "rlevel-0 with 5 processes". If you run NICAM with rlevel higher than 0, you must prepare management files for both rlevel 0 and rlevel r (r>0). You'll use rlevel-0 mng file when you increase rlevel.

"prc_num" should be the divisor of the total number of the rombuses. The globe is covered by 10 rhombuses. There are 10 rombuses if rlevel = 0. "prc_num" should be 2, 5, 10. There are 40 rombuses if rlevel = 1. "prc_num" should be 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40. There are 160 rombuses if rlevel = 2. "prc_num" should be 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160.

B. 2. 3 Run mkmnginfo

 % ${TOPPATH}/bin/mkmnginfo

mkmnginfo should be executed serially. This generates "rl00-prc05.info".

 % ls data/
  
   rl00-prc05.info

Configuration of Grid and Mapping

C. Preparing horizontal grid

Horizontal grid files for glevel-5 rlevel-0 are provided in NICAM_DATABASE/hgrid. Skip section C if you use them. Horizontal grid files in any rlevel between glevel 4-10 can be created using rlevel-0 files in NICAM_DATABASE/_hgrid. Follow Section C. Section C is how to make gl10rl05 horizontal grid files.

C. 1 Splitting grid

If you don't need to increase rlevel, skip subsection C.1.

C. 1. 1 Editing "splitgrid.cnf"

 % cd ~/test/nicam_gl10_rl05/grid/splitgrid/
 % vi splitgrid.cnf
 &ADMPARAM
     glevel = 10,
     rlevel = 0,
     vlayer = 1,
     rgnmngfname='../../mnginfo/data/rl00-prc05.info',    (You must prepare it before.)
   /
  &GRDPARAM
 /
 &SPLITGRIDPARAM
   input_base  = '../../../NICAM_DATABASE/_hgrid/gl10/rl00/grid',
   output_base = 'data/_grid',
   alt_rlevel  = 5,
 /

C. 1. 2 Run splitgrid

  % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/splitgrid

splitgrid must be executed with mpirun This creates "_grid.rgn?????" in "data" directory, which are horizontal grid files BEFORE modification necessary for NICAM run.

C. 2 Create SPRING-gc grid

C. 2. 1 Edit "mkgcgrid.cnf"

   % cd ~/test/nicam_gl10_rl05/hgrid/
   % vi mkgcgrid.cnf
 &ADMPARAM
     glevel       = 10,
     rlevel       = 5,
     vlayer       = 1,
     rgnmngfname  = '../../mnginfo/data/rl05-prc05.info',
 /
 &MKGCGRIDPARAM
     input_base     = '../splitgrid/data/_grid',
     output_base    = 'data/grid', 
 /

C. 2. 2 Run

  % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/mkgcgrid  ## mkgcgrid must be executed with mpirun

This creates "grid.rgn?????" in "data" directory, which are horizontal grid files used in NICAM.

D. Lat-Lon Mapping

D. 1 Creating map files.

These files define the relation between icosahedral grids and latitude-longitude grids, and will be used at the postprocess to transform output files into latitude-longitude grid GrADS files.

D. 1. 1 Edit "mkllmap.cnf"

   % cd ~/test/nicam_gl05_rl00/grid/llmap
   % vi mkllmap.cnf
 &ADMPARAM
     glevel      = 5,
     rlevel      = 0,
     vlayer      = 1,
     rgnmngfname = '../../mnginfo/data/rl00-prc05.info',
 /
 &LATLONPARAM
     imax       = 144,
     jmax       = 72,
 /
 &MKLLMAP_PARAM
     output_dir = './data/'
 /
 &GRDPARAM
     hgrid_fname = '../../../NICAM_DATABASE/hgrid/gl05/rl00/grid'
 /

imax and jmax are number of lat-lon grid points where icosahedral data will be interpolated. Using above configure file, you can convert any icosahedral data into lat-lon data, -90<=lat<=90 and 0<=lon<=357.5.

D. 1. 2 Run mkllmap

  % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/mkllmap

mkllmap must be executed with mpirun. It will generate llmap.rgn????? in data/ directory.

E. 1 Generating vertical grid

  % cd ~/test/nicam_gl05_rl00/grid/vgrid

E. 1. 1 Prepare vertical levels.

Prepare text files of vertical levels as "vgrid40.txt", which is the standard 40 levels (half-level).

 % vi vgrid40.txt

 36607.5550000000
 39620.3830000000

E. 1. 2 Edit mkvlayer.cnf

 % vi mkvlayer.cnf
 &MKVLAYER_CNF 
     num_of_layer = 40,
     layer_type   = 'GIVEN',
     infname      = './vgrid40.txt',
     outfname     = './data/vgrid40.dat',
 /

E. 1. 3 Run mkvlayer

 % ${TOPPATH}/bin/mkvlayer

mkvlayer must be executed "without" mpirun. This generates binary file (vgrid40.dat) in data/ directory.

Generating External Condition Files

F. MATSIRO files

All the MATSIRO files necessary for gl05rl00 run are included in the tutorial packages (NICAM_DATABASE). Therefore, skip section F. Section F describes how to create gl10rl05 MATSIRO files.

F. 1 Generating topography files (topog.rgn?????)

If you run NICAM with gl05rl00, gl06rl00, gl07rl01, gl08rl02, gl09rl03, or gl10rl04, skip subsection F.1 and use topography files provided by us. Followings are example of creating gl10rl05 topography files from gl10rl04 topography files provided by us.

  % cd ~/test/nicam_gl10_rl05/external_data/MATSIRO

F. 1. 1 Edit cnvrlev.cnf

 &ADMPARAM
     glevel      = 10,
     rlevel      = 4,
     vlayer      = 1,
     rgnmngfname = '../../mnginfo/data/rl04-prc05.info',
 /
 &SPLITGRIDPARAM
     num_data      = 1,
     input_base    = '../../../NICAM_DATABASE/sfcdata/gl10/rl04/B/topog2',
     input_direct  = .false.,
     output_base   = 'data/topog',
     output_direct = .false.,
     output_rlevel = 5,
 /

F. 1. 2 Run cnvrlev

  % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/cnvrlev

cnvrlev must be executed with mpirun. This generates topog.rgn????? in data/ directory.

F. 2 Generating MATSIRO files

  % cd ~/test/nicam_gl05_rl00/external_data/MATSIRO

F. 2. 1 Edit mklanddata2.cnf.1 & mklanddata2.cnf.2

   % ln -s mklanddata2.1.cnf mklanddata2.cnf
   % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/mklanddata2

mklanddata2 must be executed with mpirun. Following files will be generated in data/ directory:

     albedo_nir.rgn?????
     albedo_vis.rgn?????
     gradz.rgn?????
     slidx.rgn?????
     topog_not_used.rgn?????   ## not used for NICAM run
     topog_std.rgn?????
     veget_mat.rgn?????

F. 2. 3 Second Run

  % rm -f mklanddata2.cnf
  % ln -s mklanddata2.2.cnf mklanddata2.cnf
  % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/mklanddata2

This will generate lai_clm_1982-1998.rgn????? in data directory.

I. 4. 3 Run mkinit_lnd

   % ${TOPPATH}/bin/mkinit_lnd

mkinit_lnd must be executed "without" mpirun. This generates "restart_lnd.rgn?????".

I. 4. 4 Check

   % cd check
   % ${TOPPATH}/bin/ico2ll

J. 1 Start NICAM!

J. 1. 1 Edit "nhm_driver.cnf"

   % cd ~/test/nicam_gl05_rl00/run/output_01-03dy
   % vi nhm_driver.cnf

See nhm_driver.cnf for details.

If you want to change integration time, modify LSTEP_MAX in &TIMEPARAM. If you use daily SST data, change &nm_extdata, for example,

 &nm_extdata
     dataname          = 'SST',
     fname             = '../../external_data/OCN/data/sst',
     num_of_data       = 7,
     data_date(:,1)    = 2004, 6,01,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,2)    = 2004, 6,02,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,3)    = 2004, 6,03,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,4)    = 2004, 6,04,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,5)    = 2004, 6,05,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,6)    = 2004, 6,06,0,0,0,
     data_date(:,7)    = 2004, 6,07,0,0,0,
     layer_type        = 'SFC',
     opt_periodic_year = .false.,
 /

(num_of_data should be less <= 1280)

J. 1. 2 Run nhm_driver (NICAM)

   % mpirun -np 5 ${TOPPATH}/bin/nhm_driver

Check "msg.rgn*****" for whether integration is successfully finished.

J. 1. 3 Output File Description

  • restart.rgn????? : restart file of the atmosphere
  • restart_ocn.rgn????? : restart file of the ocean
  • restart_lnd.rgn????? : restart file of the land
  • restart_diagvar.rgn????? : restart file
  • [varname].rgn????? : output in icosahedral grid
  • history.info : output file information

Output files below are not used in the current NICAM

  • restart_ALB_SFC.rgn?????
  • restart_ALB_SFC.pl
  • restart_CBMFX.rgn?????

J. 1. 4 Move Files

   % rm restart_ALB_SFC* restart_CBMFX*
   % mv restart.* restart_* restart/
   % mv *rgn* icodata/

K. 1 post process - ico2ll

ico2ll converts output in icosahedral grid to lat-lon grid for GrADS.

K. 1. 1 Edit "ico2ll.cnf"

   % vi ico2ll.cnf
 &ico2ll_param
     glevel     = 5,
     rlevel     = 0,
     input_dir  = './icodata/',
     output_dir = './lldata/'
     info_fname = 'history.info',
     llmap_dir  = '../../grid/llmap/data/'
     llmap_base = 'llmap',
     lon_swap   = .true.,
     input_size = 4,
     init_year  = 2004,
     init_month = 6,
     init_day   = 1,
 /

set start time. history.info and llmap are used by ico2ll.

J. 1. 2 Run ico2ll

   % ${TOPPATH}/bin/ico2ll

This generates "*.ctl *.grd" in lldata/ directory.

K. Restart NICAM

   % cd ../output_04-06dy

K. 1 Edit nhm_driver.cnf

See nhm_driver.cnf for how to restart. You should modify &TIMEPARAM, restart filename, and so on. (see comments in nhm_driver.cnf for details) Again, follow J.1.2 - K.

L. Combine control files for GrADS (if necessary)

   % cd ../ctl
   % vi ctl_gen.sh (edit DAY_LIST)
   % ./ctl_gen.sh

You can access everytime data from control files here.

Appendix. Input data for NICAM (tentative)

1. 1 topography data

Original GTOPO30 data is devided into several blocks. We must combine the block files into one file.

1. 2 vegetation data
