Hi,

Am trying to force the cyclone wind using Holland's model, when i save the ctl file, the NWS is saved as NWS =-8 or NWS =-19, why is the negative value appearing here. Am using JTWC track for the cyclone wind. 

What I am currently doing is editing the NWS to a positive value and adding below mentioned line just above the RNDAY value. 

"2013 10 07 12     1         0.900000      ! YYYY,MM,DD,HH24,StormNumber,BLAdj

What does StormNumber  signifies? Is it the cyclone number of that particular year or is always "1". ?

Thank in advance

Maneesha,

From the ADCIRC Model Documentation (see Notes for NWS = 8), it shows that NWS should be either 8 or 19, which is odd that it would set NWS=-8 or -19. Doing a runthrough of a Symmetric Storm simulation using Holland's Model, the .ctl assigned the correct 'NWS=8', which is on line 16 of the .ctl file. The YYYY,MM,DD,HH24,StormNumber,BLAdj does not appear in the file until line 23. If you could send your files to support@aquaveo.com , we would like to try to recreate your error and troubleshoot it.

The storm number (from the same ADCIRC Model Documentation) is the number of the storm in the forecast for that year. At the start of each new year, the integer must be set to 1.

Regards,

Kyle

Maneesha,

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. The bug you reported with the negative Node Wind Stress (NWS) values being recorded in the Asymmetrical Holland model has been verified and is currently being worked on by our development team. There should be a nightly build available with the bug fix within a few weeks to a few months. Feel free to email support@aquaveo.com to ask about any updates on the bug fix.

Regards,

Dillon
