1INIFOR - Initialization and Forcing of PALM-4U (v1.1.5)
2
3INIFOR provides the meteorological fields required to initialize and drive the
4urban-climate model PALM-4U. The required meteorological fields are
5interpolated from output data of the meso-scale model COSMO.

7COMPILATION
8
91. Customize ./Makefile and ./tests/Makefile (netCDF library location, compiler
10   and parameters, use Makefile.ifort as a template if you want to use the Intel
11   Fortran compiler)
122. $ make
13
14USAGE
15
161. Customize ./namelist (number or grid points and spacings, end_time)
172. $ ./bin/inifor -path <scenario path> -date <YYYYMMDD> -clat <latitude> -clon <longitude>
18
19All COMMAND-LINE PARAMETERS
20
21-date <date>: Start date of the simulation in the form YYYMMDD. Currently,
22    INIFOR assumes that the simulation starts at O UTC on that day.
23    Default: 20130721
24
25-hhl <netCDF file>: Location of the netCDF file containing the vertical COSMO-DE
26    grid (hhh = height of half layers, i.e. vertical cell faces).
27    Default: <scenario path>/hhl.nc
28
29-mode profile: Produce average profiles instead of three-dimensional fields as
30    initial conditions.
31
32-n <namelist file>: Location of the PALM-4U namelist file. INIFOR expects the
33    file to contain two namelists, inipar and d3par, from which it will read
34    grid parameters and the simulation time. Default: ./namelist
35
36-o <ouput file>: Name of the INIFOR output file. Default: ./palm-4u-input.nc
37
38-p0 <pressure>: Surface pressure at z=0 in the PALM-4U domain [Pa].
39    Default: 1e5 Pa = 1000 hPa
40
41-path <scenario path>: Scenario path, i.e. the path of the meteorological input
42    data. Default: ./
43
44-soil <netCDF file>: Location of the netCDF file containing the COSMO-DE soil type
45    map.
46    Default: <scenario path>/soil.nc
47
48-static <static driver file>: Location of the netCDF file containing the static
49    driver file for the case to be simulated with PALM-4U. Optional parameter.
50    Default: None
51
52-ug <velocity>: Specifies the geostrophic wind in x direction [m/s]. Default: 0
53
54-vg <velocity>: Specifies the geostrophic wind in y direction [m/s]. Default: 0
55
56-z0 <height>: Specifies the elevation of the the PALM-4U domain above sea level [m].
57    Default: 35 m
