ICOsahedral Nonhydrostatic weather- and climate model with Aerosols and Reactive Trace gases (ICON-ART / std)

Yaml arguments

The following arguments are used to configure the plugin. pyCIF will return an exception at the initialization if mandatory arguments are not specified, or if any argument does not fit accepted values or type:

Optional arguments

autoflush: (optional): False

Cleans big temporary files when the simulation is done. Triggers the function flushrun of the model if available

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>

require_domain: (optional): False

Test initializing the template with a domain

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>

require_chemistry: (optional): False

Test initializing the template with a chemical scheme

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>

empty_mapper: (optional): True

Initializes an empty mapper

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>

output_resolution: (optional): 1H

Temporal resolution of outputs

accepted type: <class ‘str’>

input_resolution: (optional): 1H

Temporal resolution of inputs

accepted type: <class ‘str’>

include_fluxes: (optional): False

Force the preparation of fluxes prior to running the model

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>

icon_dir: (optional):

Directory where ICON-ART is installed on the computer

accepted type: <class ‘str’>

INIDIR: (optional):

Directory temporary use for inputs

accepted type: <class ‘str’>

use_oem: (optional): False

OEM (online emission module) should be used.

The OEM allows for a faster handling of the input fluxes by ICON-ART, but can only account for one flux value per grid cell during the simulation. Also the current implementation of OEM in ICONART-CIF only accounts for ground emissions. No time dependance of the emissions is implemented with OEM.

accepted type: <class ‘bool’>
