how to activate "ciso" option in the ecosystem model?

Hi, Can someone help me on how to activate the "ciso" option in POP2 using CESM2 version, so i can get to see the carbon isotopes in my simulation? As far as i see, it is not an option like "iage" or "ecosys" in env_build, and i see the namelist option  "ciso_on" in marbl_in, but what is the proper way/command to activate it? Thanks a lot,Altug

What version of CESM are you running? Prior to CESM 2.0, you enable carbon isotopes by running $ ./xmlchange -a OCN_TRACER_MODULES=ciso from your case directory. For CESM 2.0, create a file named user_nl_marbl and add the line ciso_on = .true. to it. Two things to note: 1. You need to have the ecosystem tracer module turned on (typically done by selecting a compset that uses ocean BGC)2. If you have already built your case, you will need to do a clean build because CISO changes the ocean tracer count (and that's a build-time specification). I believe the following will work for all versions of CESM: $ ./case.build --clean-all$ ./case.build If --clean-all is not recognized as an option in your version of case.build, try either "./case.build --clean" or just make a new case.
 
Dear all,

I am trying to produce a simulation using POP2 and CESM2 version with carbon isotopes in my simulation using the "use_ciso=.true." option set in user_nl_marbl.
My case compiles just fine but during execution I encouter the error:

POP aborting...
Error in getting varid for netCDF field DI13C_CUR

Looking into this, I find that CESM2 is trying to read DI13C_CUR from /inputfiles/cesm2_init/b.e20.B1850.f09_g17.pi_control.all.297/0130-01-01/b.e20.B1850.f09_g17.pi_control.all.297.pop.r.0130-01-01-00000.nc right before the crash. However, if I look at the information of that .nc file, DI13C_CUR is not found. A colleage was able to run the ciso option a couple of weeks back, so I was wondering if there have been any changes to the input data repository lately?

I am thankful for any suggestions that help me solve this issue.

Best,
Gunnar
