Hi all,

I am trying to simulate a 8 month continuous run.

I am not sure what spin up time would be suitable for my simulation period.

Could you please recommend what spin up time period would be suitable in my case? I am interested in mainly particulate short lived species.
What would be a sensible approach to do restart runs and batch submissions for a continuous 8 month simulation?
Do I need to have a spin up time for each month?

Please guide me.

Thanks much in advance
Lin Lu
