8 Output Data

The ice model produces three types of output data. A file containing ASCII text, also known as a log file, is created for each run that contains information about how the run was set up and how it progressed. A series of binary restart files necessary to continue the run are created. A series of netCDF history files containing gridded instantaneous or time-averaged output are also generated during a run. These are described below.
