About datasets

Post by lcana » Tue May 26, 2015 4:26 pm

Dear all,

I'd like to know which datasets are you using as input for your simulations. Right now, I only use gfsptiles and I'd like to improve the forecast including SST and any other you may suggest.

The domain lies entirely over the ocean, including some islands. This is why I think I should include also SST.

Best,

--Luis

Hi,

I'm using ssthr for sst data using the following argument in the ems_prep command

Code: Select all

--sfc ssthr
or

Code: Select all

SFC = ssthr
in ems_autorun.conf.

I have not compared model output with or without sst. I assume it is doing the job.

Hi David,

thanks for the advice. I've taken a look into ems_autorun.conf and it suggests

SFC = ssthires,sstlowres

However, you set just

SFC =ssthr

Is it the same?

Best,

Luis

Hi Luis,

It depends if you have the latest version.

Take a look in the ~/wrfems/conf/grib_info folder at the xxxxx_gribinfo.conf files. It is the first part of the name (i.e. xxxx) that counts and is used with the ems_prep command line option --sfc.

In my installation I have 4 options - ssthr, sstptile, sstport and sstportptile.

Hope this helps,
David

Thanks a lot,

Good morning,

Further to this old post - the manual still suggests options ssthires and sstlowres but these files appear to not be reflected in gribinfo folder in the very latest download, I have had to do a full re-install of the operating system and the modelling system.

Any idea if these higher resolution sst files (or some usable other option) are still available in some way?

Best regards,
Theo

I will move my question to a new topic - about datasets is misleading - theo
