6. The JULES namelist filesΒΆ

Each run of JULES is controlled by a number of files containing Fortran namelists. These files specify details including:

  • Switches to allow different model configurations to be selected at run-time.
  • Start and end times for the run.
  • What input data to use and how to read it.
  • How to construct the model grid.
  • Values for various parameters.
  • The required output.

These files have specific names, and JULES expects all these files to exist for every run (even when their contents are not required).
