    case.submit ERROR: RUN FAIL: command

    Dear all, I am trying to submit a case created using compset 'ISSP126Clm50BgcCrop' in the containized docker version of CESM. The only setting I changed was the DIN_LOC_ROOT. The case create, setup, and build processes were ok. Here I attached the cesm.log file, FYI. Thank you!

    addco2_user_nl_datm.user_nl is missing, how do I edit the user_nl_datm for a transcient CO2 PTCLM case?

    I'm not entirely sure if this should go in the CLM or DATM forums, so apologies if I've guessed wrong. I'm trying to run PTCLM5.0 with transcient atmospheric CO2 concentrations. As per this guide, these are the steps I have taken...

    Details about the prescribed aerosol deposition data in 2000 in CLM?

    I found the prescribed aerosol deposition data in 2000: “”. Does anyone know any information about its used model/accuracy or any reference about this file? I also found a regridded version I also found a higher resolution version...

    The definition of clm's 'sand' and 'clay' variables in wrf

    Dear all, I try to add a new variable to the clm of wrf, called 'rock', which will work together with 'sand' and 'clay' in the parameterization. In wrf, the module_sf_clm.F file contains all the modules of clm. I need to define 'rock' in it and refer to the existing 'sand' and 'clay'. I found...

    Difference of PCT_GLACIER/PCT_GLC_GIC/PCT_GLC_ICESHEET in surfdata?

    I am using CESM1.2.2 with CLM4.0 physics and would like to modify the surface data input. I came across two variables that seem to exist only in CISM-enabled CLM surfdata file, namely PCT_GLC_GIC and PCT_GLC_ICESHEET. One would assume that PCT_GLACIER=PCT_GLC_GIC+PCT_GLC_ICESHEET. However it...

    Difference between TS (surface temperature, radiative, CAM) and TG (ground temperature, CLM)?

    Hi everyone, I'd like to inquire about the difference between surface temperature (radiative) and ground temperature? The first one is TS from CAM while the second is TG from CLM. More specifically, I am currently using CESM1.2.2 with CAM4 and CAM5. Somebody seems to have asked this before...

    Output of SMB in CLM4.5 F-compset runs

    Hi everyone, I am trying to have CLM4.5 (within CESM1.2.2) output surface mass balance in the Himalayas. However, it seems that CLM in default will only calculate SMB for runs coupled with CISM. One concern is that f05 resolution seems to be unsupported out of box with CESM runs with CISM such...

    Build Error for Arctic-Boreal CLM

    Hi, I'm running PTCLM at a site in the Arctic, and I would like to apply the changes outlined in Birch et al (2021), and see what impact this has on the things I'm interested in. The process I have followed so far is as follows; 1. Downloaded the zip file from Zendoto (lmbirch89/CTSM: Arctic...

    Changing Q10 in user_nl_clm

    Hi, I'm running PTCLM with the 2000_DATM%1PT_CLM50%BGC_SICE_SOCN_MOSART_SGLC_SWAV compset, and I want to change the Q10 value for frozen and unfrozen soils. I can change the q10 for frozen soil by adding froz_q10=newvalue to the end of my user_nl_clm file, but when I add Q10=newvalue (to...

    which .f90 file is to read netcdf file

    I am a new for CLM and CESM. Now I want to read a new netcdf file(.nc) to memery to involve in CLM compute. So I want to know which .f90 file is to do it. Thanks! It seems that the ncdio_pio.f90 file is to write the .nc file, but I want to read .nc file.

    CNDV spunup and its output

    Hi, I have several questions about CNDV. 1) In the CLM4.0 User's Guide Documentation example4-4, the modal provide spunup files. Does this file always exist in CLM? 2) Do spunup files get the CLMCN model to a steady state? 3)Following the steps given in Example4-4, I calculated 200 years, ①but...

    what is the difference between input data and forcing data for a coupled model run in CESM1.2.2

    Running a coupled model with F compset and two different CAM physics downloaded its input data from the server. Now, i have few questions for some clarification before analyzing them. 1- Suppose my model is already in a balance state with appropriate recommended spin-up, do i need any extra...
