Overview

Utility program to create inflation restart files with constant values. Useful for a multi-step assimilation, so the values inf_initial_from_restart and inf_sd_initial_from_restart items in the &filter_nml namelist can be .TRUE. from the beginning.

This program reads two values from the console: the initial inflation value and the initial inflation standard deviation. For example:

> echo 1.0 0.6 | ./fill_inflation_restart
or
> fill_inflation_restart
1.0 0.6
>

This program uses the information from the model_mod code to determine the number of items in the state vector. It must be compiled with the right model's model_mod, and if the items in the state vector are selectable by namelist options, the namelist when running this program must match exactly the namelist used during the assimilation run.
