land surface datasets

Post by pattim » Wed Sep 05, 2018 2:29 pm

Dear UEMS users: I'm a little confused about land surface datasets in UEMS. I've tried using them, but get errors, so I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong. Basically, I am trying to avoid long integration to "spin up" surface moisture/transpiration - so I'm assuming that adding a land surface dataset will provide local soil moisture from rains, etc., which occurred before the start of the model integration time. Is this correct? Can someone provide an example of how to correctly do this in an ems_prep call for a global simulation?

Thank you very much!
