         Hi all,
         I have installed obstat obtained from ECMWF on raijin, to access, run
         module load obstat
         The original tar ball is /short/dp9/ttl548/obstat_package_201605.tar.gz
         The installation process is done under /short/dp9/ttl548/obstat where I made some changes to the build script for our own environment on raijin.
         There are some docs under $OBSTAT_HOME/doc directory ($OBSTAT_HOME defined after module load)
         I will try to find somewhere on svn to put the code there, once I have cleaned up the mess in my working directory.

  1. Lawrie's SMOCS updates
    • Lawrie and Wenming have tried to make a module of SMOCS; the module setup is working
    • Lawrie will clean up the codes and then make the module officially available
  1. Lawrie's STASH updates
    • profile names in MO STASH are inconsistent between packages and models and different to ours
    • Changing to standard names based on UM global suite for easier comparison.
    • Older scripts being replaced by new ones using the rose stash utilities.
    • Started developing the STASH for ensemble suites
