As noted above, the frequency of mean and instantaneous output is
controlled by the
test.sh namelist variables
Thus, if you do not want either q.out or qmean.out output,
respectively, to a very high value.
The user can make additional adjustments as to what is output by making code changes to output.f. Some of the adjustments possible include:
outpinit(it needs to be declared it in pmean.h).
varmean, or where the variable is calculated.
outpinst; to output a mean value, call subroutine
Simply comment out the corresponding call to
outpmean; one can also
comment out in bulk the call
so as not to output at all. One can
also exercise control at an even higher level
in the main program (e.g. subroutine
by controlling the value of
ntout (see below).
By default, output is done every
days to the three files described
above. However, the code allows the
user to specify a different output
frequency and unit directly for any particular
variable in subroutine
outpmean by simply using different
argument values in calling
can also be specified as a user-control
parameter in driver.in by editing the execution
Note: The minimum value for
ntout is one day,
so if you need to output
more often than a day, you have to call the output
routines from within
the atmosphere-land coupling loop in subroutine
Section 2.3.4 contains additional information regarding how QTCM1 calculates mean variables for output.
