Integrate WACCM for the period 2000-2020

Hi all,

I want to run WACCM (with CAM4) from 2000-2020 and I don't think there is a predefined compset to do that.
Where to look for SST and atmospheric BCs for such a simulation? Do I need to create a user-defined case?

Thank you for your suggestions!
Hi all,

I've created a case using FW component set and changed SST and ice fraction file in env_run.xml.
I used sst_HadOIBl_bc forcing data from https://svn-ccsm-inputdata.cgd.ucar.edu/ (MODEL.SST.HAD187001-198110.OI198111-202006.nc) by changing the path in SSTICE_DATA_FILENAME and "RUN_STARTDATE" to "2000-01-01" in env_run.xml.

I made the following changes in the user_nl_cam:

qbo_forcing_file = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/waccm/qbo/qbocoefficients_c091230.nc'
flbc_cycle_yr = 0
flbc_file = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/waccm/lb/LBC_1765-2500_1.9x2.5_CMIP5_RCP45_za_c091214.nc'
flbc_type = 'SERIAL'
sad_cycle_yr = 0
sad_type = 'SERIAL'
solar_parms_file = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/waccm/solar/wasolar_1948-2140_daily_c120306.nc'
tgcm_ubc_data_type = 'INTERP_MISSING_MONTHS'
tgcm_ubc_file = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/waccm/ub/tgcm_ubc_1850-2100_c100204.nc'
srf_emis_cycle_yr = 0
srf_emis_specifier = 'CH2O -> /g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/cam/chem/2000-2100_RCP45/IPCC_emissions_houw_CH2O_2000-2100_1.9x2.5.nc',
'CO -> /g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/cam/chem/2000-2100_RCP45/IPCC_emissions_houw_CO_2000-2100_1.9x2.5.nc',

srf_emis_type = 'SERIAL'
solar_data_type = 'SERIAL'
solar_data_file = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/cam/solar/spectral_irradiance_Lean_1950-2140_daily_c100804.nc'
solar_data_ymd = 20000101
solar_htng_spctrl_scl = .true.
prescribed_aero_cycle_yr = 0
prescribed_aero_datapath = '/g/data/y99/dd7103/CESM/inputdata/atm/cam/chem/trop_mozart_aero/aero'
prescribed_aero_type = 'INTERP_MISSING_MONTHS'

When I submit the case this is the error message I get:

Opened existing file
.R05_simyr2000_c130518.nc 851968
(shr_sys_abort) ERROR: (shr_stream_findBounds) ERROR: LVD not found, all data is after yearLast
(shr_sys_abort) WARNING: calling shr_mpi_abort() and stopping
MPI_ABORT was invoked on rank 0 in communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD
with errorcode 1001.

NOTE: invoking MPI_ABORT causes Open MPI to kill all MPI processes.
You may or may not see output from other processes, depending on
exactly when Open MPI kills them.

Is there any issue with the SST file
Can anyone please suggest how to fix this?
