The sections below include links to various information about the model. This section gives lists on how you can use those links when you start using the model.Just viewing the model:
UBC SCM is maintained by the CVS (Concurrent Versions System). You can use this tool to get a working copy for yourself. For more information on how to use this it, see the following.
a lot of information on different parts of the model. It includes sections on the Installation, Running the model, SCM Algorithm with flow charts, Software Components, NetCDF, I/O Files and other. Some of the figures might not be labeled!
The following link describes how plotting is done with UBC SCM. It uses NCL scripts that read the NetCDF data format as its input data files.
A Python script that can parse Fortran code and document it was written for the purpose of documenting scm code. The following page describes all the commends of FDoc and how it was used to documents scm.
The following likns give details on i/o files and the variables they use in both the SCM preprocessor scmfdat.F and the model scm_parm.F. They are included in the ubcscm guide but are given here for reference as well.
The following files contain lists of parameters used by the model and the varaibles that occur in the preprocessor scmfdat.F and the main program scm_parm.F. The lists include some additional information as well. Some scripts like plotting and scmfdoc use these files.
A description about installing NetCDF, it's file format and the use in ubcscm is explained in the ubcscm guide. There is a seperate link for this below as well.
This report is about the outcome of some example ubcscm runs for different data input cases with plots generated using scmplot.py.
Information on how to do multiple runs of scm on the Cluster. Also, general information on how to do runs on the cluster.
This gives the difference between the output obtained at UBC and the output obtained at CCCma.
Besides the input data files that ubcscm currently uses, new input files can be inserted to be used by the model. The following describes how to do this step by step.
There is a directory doc/readme in the ubcscm documentation. The files in this directory contain various information about the scm. Some of these files are used by other applications written to document scm, such as fdoc and the guide and even this page.
