JULES model for FLUXNET2015 sites and JULES global model

We note two different ‘basic’ Rose-Cylc suites available at MOSRS. More advanced suites are described a bit in the next link.


One is for JULES modelling of a subset of the FLUXNET2015 sites. This suite is u-al752 (trunk). Basic tutorial instructions for setting up Rose/Cylc and running this suite are provided here. The TRAC site from the original authors Karina Williams (Met Office) and Anna Harper (U. Exeter) is here. This suite has embedded post-processing for Python plotting of the NETCDF output.


The other is for JULES global modelling. For the work presented here, this is set to use Brooks & Corey soil hydraulics with ‘old’ mineral ancillary files. This suite is u-as052. Many of the plots and animations were made with data from this suite. The processing for plotting is not embedded in the suite, but the basic plotting instructions and code are available on the animation or time-series pages. With some modifications, the user should be able to run this suite on CEDA JASMIN. But this will take a week or two, and we already have run it, so you can also study the NETCDF output files directly, with the path listed below. You can run or modify+run some of the example CDO or Python scripts available on the animation or time-series pages. With the exception of the ffmpeg command, all these plotting scripts were run on CEDA JASMIN. The ffmpeg command was run on a MacBook Pro.

One needs ncas_generic group workspace privilege to view the input and output data, so apply for this at the JASMIN Accounts Portal, if you haven’t already.

The path on CEDA JASMIN to the WFDEI driving data is: /gws/nopw/j04/jasmin2/ncas_generic/users/pmcguire/WFDEI

The output NETCDF files have been archived for future use and alternative plotting on CEDA JASMIN at:
