restart fields

Among other outputs, the model produces 

fv_srf_wnd.res.tile?.nc

and 

phy_data.tile?.nc

Are any of the fields in these files are actually used to initialize model variables in the follow-up forecasts

or is the output purely for diagnostic purposes?

Thanks,

Hi, Mariusz,

The files under RESTART directory are prepared for restarting the model. Some variables in the files may not be used in some schemes; however, these variables may be used in the other schemes.

You can compare the variables in the files under RESTART directory and the variables in the files under INPUT directory to further verify that.

Thanks,

Linlin
