modify some variables in the restart file


New member
Hello everyone,

I am conducting some sensitivity experiments using MPAS v3.7, and I hope to add some small perturbations to the initial field of the restart simulation. The variables I plan to modify are the geopotential height and the U, V wind. But these variables are not present in the restart file. Thus, I wonder which variables should I modify in the restart file?

Besides, the restart file is a voronoi mesh rather than a lat-lon mesh, so it seems difficult to incorporate atmospheric perturbations of specific structures. Could you please give me some suggestions about how can I incorporate the change easily?

Any help or comment is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
