2.7. SUEWS-SPARTACUS (SS) input files

To run SUEWS-SS the SS specific files that need to be modified are:

Non-SS specific SUEWS input file parameters also need to have appropriate values. For example, LAI, albedos and emissivities are used by SUEWS-SS as explained in More background information.

2.7.1. RunControl.nml

See NetRadiationMethod (sensible values are 1001, 1002 or 1003) in RunControl.nml parameter.

2.7.2. SUEWS_SPARTACUS.nml

This file is used to specify the SS model options when coupled to SUEWS.

A sample file of SUEWS_SPARTACUS.nml is shown below:

&Spartacus
nlayers = 1
use_sw_direct_albedo = false
n_vegetation_region_urban = 1
nsw = 1
nlw = 1
nspec = 1
n_stream_sw_urban = 8
n_stream_lw_urban = 8
sw_dn_direct_frac = 0.0
air_ext_sw = 0.0
air_ssa_sw = 0.95
veg_ssa_sw = 0.13
air_ext_lw = 0.0
