I've been trying to do this for awhile now, and I'm totally stumped! I want to specify the SST to something that is not zonally syymetric. To keep it simple I'm using the fv 1.9x2.5 resolution in both atm and ocn components. I've built a netcdf file identical to the standard sst input for the F_2000 compset. I started with the file - sst_HadOIBl_bc_1.9x2.5_clim_c061031.nc, which is located in inputdata/atm/cam/sst/. I've tried two methods that I can't get to work.
First I tried setting the compset indentical to F_2000_CAM5_AQUAPLANET like this:
So I run the model for 1 day or two, and the SST is zonally symmetric. The problem here is that I can't figure out where this SST pattern is specified! I've looked through the input data, but I can't find it.
Alternatively, I figured I could accomplish the same result with the "data ocean" component. So, I set the compset like this:
compset_opt = "-user_compset 2000_CAM5_SLND_SICE_DOCN%DOM_SROF_SGLC_SWAV"
Then I set the SST_DATA_FILENAME variable to the path of my custom SST file:
./xmlchange -file env_run.xml -id SSTICE_DATA_FILENAME -val <PATH>/sst_aqua_ideal.v1.nc
This worked somewhat, the sfc temperature of the model output matched the input SST pattern. However, there was still land! I tried using a few things like "DLND%NULL" to turn off the land, but nothing has worked so far. I've also scoured the internet for instructions on this, but came up empty handed.
Any ideas how to make either of these methods work?
