Output Files


All output is written to the directory proc. This is specified in by the outdir variable. Currently the model generates three output files:

Instantaneous values of all the prognostic variables and major diagnostic variables. This file is output every ntouti days. Fortran sequential unformatted.
Currently set to the same variables (but they don't have to be the same) as q.out, but averaged over a previous period of time of length ntout days, and output every ntout days. Fortran sequential unformatted.
Time series of a few selected variables, for model diagnosis purposes. Output every coupling period interval (specified by interval). ASCII format.
