____________________________________________________________________________________________ Description: Directions for spinup use a single year of forcing (fixed in cesm1_0_3) Date : 2011-04-22 Contact : erik Information: The directions for spinning up the CLM model use a compset with a single year of atmospheric forcing. You should change this to run over a series of years by doing something like the following. ./xmlchange -file env_conf.xml -id DATM_CLMNCEP_YR_START -val 1948 ./xmlchange -file env_conf.xml -id DATM_CLMNCEP_YR_END -val 2004 Also see the discussion on this on the bulletin board: http://forum.cgd.ucar.edu/showthread.php?1966-problem-with-CLM-CN-spinup
