Note

  1. Please report issues with the manual on the GitHub page.

  2. Please cite SUEWS with proper information from our Zenodo page.

5. Output files

5.1. Runtime diagnostic information

5.1.1. Error messages: problems.txt

If there are problems running the program serious error messages will be written to problems.txt.

  • Serious problems will usually cause the program to stop after writing the error message. If this is the case, the last line of problems.txt will contain a non-zero number (the error code).

  • If the program runs successfully, problems.txt file ends with:

    Run completed.
    0
    

SUEWS has a large number of error messages included to try to capture common errors to help the user determine what the problem is. If you encounter an error that does not provide an error message please capture the details so we can hopefully provide better error messages in future.

See Troubleshooting section for help solving problems. If the file paths are not correct the program will return an error when run (see Preparing to run the model).

5.1.2. Warning messages: warnings.txt

  • If the program encounters a more minor issue it will not stop but a warning may be written to warnings.txt. It is advisable to check the warnings to ensure there is not a more serious problem.

  • The warnings.txt file can be large (over several GBs) given warning messages are written out during a large scale simulation, you can use tail/head to view the ending/starting part without opening the whole file on Unix-like systems (Linux/mac OS), which may slow down your system.

  • To prevent warnings.txt from being written, set SuppressWarnings to 1 in RunControl.nml.

  • Warning messages are usually written with a grid number, timestamp and error count. If the problem occurs in the initial stages (i.e. before grid numbers and timestamps are assigned, these are printed as 00000).

5.1.3. Summary of model parameters: SS_FileChoices.txt

For each run, the model parameters specified in the input files are written out to the file SS_FileChoices.txt.

5.2. Model output files

5.2.1. SSss_YYYY_SUEWS_TT.txt

SUEWS produces the main output file (SSss_YYYY_SUEWS_tt.txt) with time resolution (TT min) set by ResolutionFilesOut in RunControl.nml.

Before these main data files are written out, SUEWS provides a summary of the column names, units and variables included in the file Ss_YYYY_TT_OutputFormat.txt (one file per run).

The variables included in the main output file are determined according to WriteOutOption set in RunControl.nml.
