Input parameters handling

Ocean Models

Model simulation parameters are controlled through a unique input file. It contains keyword-controlled sections and parameters that can be edited directly or accessed through a GTK-based GUI that takes cares of backward compatibility (i.e. old input files will be understood by newer model version). Using the GUI allows for guarantying up-to-date input file.


Input file can be exhaustive (all parameters written, even those set to the T-UGOm default setting) or partial (parameters set to the T-UGOm default setting skipped).

Delta input files can be used in combination with a main input file (useful for parameters exploration runs). Parameters given in delta file will overwrite those found in the main input file.
