Get the code

To install MITgcm in your account, please place you to : /share/work/user_name

   export CVSROOT=''
   cvs login 
     ( enter the CVS password: "cvsanon" )
   cvs co -P MITgcm

If you want a specific verification to play with, place you to :/share/work/user_name/MITgcm/verification

cvs co -P -d verif_name MITgcm/verification/verif_name .

!!! Pay attention this can download a second time all the MITgcm model...

A list of verifications available can be found here: [2]

Play with verification

1- Place you to /share/work/user_name/MITgcm and create a folder run, and place you into (you can add a subfolder with the name of the specific verification you will use)

2- Copy paste in this folder the verification that you want to play with

  cp -r /share/work/user_name/MITgcm/verification/verif_name/* .

If you are at the right place (/share/work/user_name/MITgcm/run/[subfolders]) an that you copy paste correctly you should found the following folders:

build  code_ad   CVS    input_ad   README   run
code   code_oad  input  input_oad  results


From here you will be able to compile the code:

 cd build
 ../../../tools/genmake2 -mods ../code
 make depend
 cd ..

You also need to verify that all the packages required for the compilation of the verifications are in the MITgcm/pkg folder. If it is not the case, make a symbolic link between your /pkg verifications folder and MITgcm/pkg as example :

ln -s /share/work/user_name/MITgcm/MITgcm_contrib/darwin2/pkg/* .  # If you are in  MITgcm/pkg

Run the model

3- Prepare your test_case folder, and copy-past or make a symbolic link the input data you will need to run it after compilation

mkdir test_case 
  mkdir test_1
    cd test_1
     cp -r /share/work/user_name/MITgcm/run/verif_name/input/* .   OR  ln -s ../../input/* .

(you may have to modify on the prepare_run file ligne 10: dir: ../../input or other place where the data will be read)

 ln -s ../../build/mitgcmuv .   Make a symbolic link with the executable

4- Create a /tmp folder to take care of the pickup file.

4bis- If you run your model with a launch file (, copy paste it here

5- You are ready to run the model:

 ./mitgcmuv > output.txt  OR  qsub

For the last method you can use then qstat -u to see how your run is going
