LIS change log

This patch release includes updates r6457:6485.

These updates consist of:

  • Moved the LIS grid-mapping routine for being able to subset select datasets (depending on data format) to the core directory.

  • Correct the way ESMF and MPI is initialized

    LIS was calling ESMF_VMGet to determine whether it had a valid virtual machine. However, calling ESMF_VMGet before calling ESMF_Initialize leads to a crash on some systems.

    I corrected the logic used to initialize ESMF and MPI.

  • Remove the "if LIS_masterproc" checks from several of the write statements

  • Remove check for USGS PET directory

    Fortran does not specify how the inquire statement should work with directories.

  • Correct noah%rainf in noah271_f2t

    When forcing snowfall is selected (LIS_FORC_Snowf%selectOpt == 1) snowfall (snowf) should be added to noah%rainf. However, pcp+snowf was added to noah%rainf.

  • Implemented LIS endrun call when a USGS PET directory or file are missing or are incorrect.

  • Correct description strings for Rainf and TotalPrecip

  • Fix the pcp metforcing field

    The diagnoseForcingOutput routine was adding snow to the pcp field (pcp = pcp + snow) whenever LIS_FORC_Snowf%selectOpt was 1. This is not correct. The intention was to create total precip for output; however, this updated the actual precip forcing field.

    I have created a local variable, totpcp, for creating a total precip field for output.
