FlexGrid documentation by Jiawei Zhuang (email@example.com)
HEMCO's interface and regridding&cropping capability allow users to
- Set up a nested simulation over any custom domains without changing model's source code.
- Explicitly control each meteorological variable in configuration files to perform various experiments (an interface resembling GCHP).
FlexGrid implementation plan
The table below shows the implementation plan for FlexGrid:
|Stage 1: Read metfields by HEMCO||Enable the compile option "MET=flexgrid" to read any NetCDF-format metfields through HEMCO. This unifies "MET=geosfp" and "MET=merra2"||
|Stage 2: Implement custom nested simulations||Enable the compile option "NEST=cu" (custom) to allow custom nested simulations.||
|Stage 3: Grid-independent GEOS-Chem classic||Unify compile options "GRID=xxx" by moving all grid size parameters and resolution-dependent parameters to run-time configuration files.||No specific plan right now. Need to be traded off against the nested-GCHP development.|
