Certain indices (3-hour
KP and daily
F10.7) are read from the
POTENTIAL_MODEL='HEELIS' (the only potential model we've tested with CMIT). TIEGCM can be run with constant values for these parameters or run off the time varying data in the GPI file. See the TIEGCM documentation for additional details on the relevant variables.
By default, CMIT derives values for
KP,POWER,CTPOTEN, F107 and F107a from this GPI file. If you'd like to fix only
F10.7 (but not
KP), there are two ways to proceed.
Make It So doesn't do any error checking on the relationship between
KP,POWER,CTPOTEN,F107,F107A. If you enable every one of these variables, the TIEGCM may do unpredictable things or fail entirely.
When running Make It So interactively: Constant F10.7 is an "expert" parameter. Run
"makeItSo.config --expert". Once you get to the TIEGCM settings, you will be prompted something like:
Notice that by default, the GPI file is enabled, but
KP, POWER, CTPOTEN, F107, F107A are disabled. type
"yes" to enable
F107. Then set the value you wish to use. Note: If you fix both
F107, you should probably disable
"CTRL+C" when prompted for
When running Make It SoMakeItSo from a "config" file: Modify a MakeItSo.config file. Look for the "TIEGCM" parameters and just add
F107A. This will enable these variables & use the constants you specify:
If you fix all the related variables (
KP,POWER,CTPOTEN,F107,F107A), you need to disable
