Aquaplanets with slab ocean (by Brian Medeiros 2013)

Hello,

 

i'm working on an Aquaplanet with slab ocean, and i'm following the instructions of Madeiros (http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/models/simpler-models/aquaplanet.html).

Everything has been well documented until i started to work with the inputdata related to qfluxes, SST and depth ocean.

 

That file (tipically for D and E compset, named as pop_frac.1x1d.090130.nc) has those variables, but normally that information is written for a different grid... i mean, for a grid different to f19_f19, which one is used in the Madeiros's Instructions.

 

May i create the file, using the same grid size of other input files that have been changed (particularly, domain.ocn.1.9x2.5_gx1v6_090403.nc)?


Is there someone else who create this file?

 

Regards

This is an old question, but I wanted to let people know that the released CESM2 has a standard aquaplanet with slab-ocean. It can be run using the compsets called:

QSC4, QSC5, QSC6

where the number indicates the CAM physics version. 

 

The files that are needed for the slab-ocean file are a domain file and a forcing file. Examples can be seen in the CESM inputdata:

forcing: /glade/p/cesmdata/cseg/inputdata/ocn/docn7/SOM/default.som.forcing.aquaplanet.Qflux0_h30_sstQOBS.1degFV_c20170421.nc

domain: /glade/p/cesmdata/cseg/inputdata/share/domains/domain.ocn.fv0.9x1.25_gx1v7.151020.nc

But specifying the domain file is no longer necessary in CESM2 if running the compsets listed above.
