Mean transit times simulations with the EcH2O-iso model

Kuppel, Sylvain; Tetzlaff, Doerthe; Maneta, Marco; Soulsby, Chris

Input, forcing and and output files, as well as running and plotting scripts used in the numerical experiments with the EcH2O-iso critical zone model described in Kuppel et al. manuscript "Catchment storage control on the transit times of ecohydrological fluxes" submitted for publication to Geophysical Research Letters.

Ensemble simulations

NetCDF maps and time series used in the analysis can be found in the Output_w30Yspin directory. Time series covers the whole simulations (02/2013 - 08/2016 + 30-yr spinup) while maps are output
The ensemble simulations are launch by executing the jobRuns shellscript. It calls the Multitool_* python scripts , which uses (see also options in the header of
- a global definition file located in the root directory, here
- a EcH2O-iso executable; here the ech2o_iso file has been compiled for a linux environment. The source code of EcH2O-iso is available here (branch master_2.0 used in this study), and the associated documentation here.
- Input_Configs contains template configurations files for EcH2O-iso: one for general simulations (config_w30Yspin.ini), one for options regarding the "tracking" (i.e. water isotopes and ages) mode (configTrck_w30Yspin.ini)
- Input_Forcings contains the meteorological forcing files needed for simulations
- Input_Params contains the ensemble parameter file used for the simulations
- Input_Maps_100m contains the maps defining the simulated domain at the 100-m resolution used in the study, as well as the vegetation-specifics files, some of which are modified using the values contained in the ensemble parameter file.


The R plotting scripts found in the Plotting_scripts directory generate the basic plots used in the submitted manuscript (see examples in Plots directory), with some post-editing using a vector graphics editor.
