# Fort.38 file format

The basic file structure is shown below. Each line of input is represented by a line containing the input variable name(s) in bold face type. Blank lines are to enhance readability. Loops indicate multiple lines of input.

## BCFLAG_TEMP=1

for i=1 to numberOfDataSets

- for k=1 to NP

- k, q_heat(k)

- end k loop

- end i loop

## BCFLAG_TEMP=2

for i=1 to numberOfDataSets

- (K, (TMP(K,J), J=1,6),K=1,NP)

end i loop

where TMP(K,J) is the surface heat flux parameter Jth heat flux component for the Kth horizontal mesh node. The data are read using an implicit Fortran i/o loop, thus the parentheses around the statement.

## BCFLAG_TEMP=3

for i=1 to numberOfDataSets

- (K, (TMP(K,J), J=1,4),K=1,NP)

end i loop

where TMP(K,J) is the surface heat flux parameter Jth heat flux component for the Kth horizontal mesh node. The data are read using an implicit Fortran i/o loop, thus the parentheses around the statement.

## Note

In all the above cases, NP is the number of nodes in the horizontal mesh (i.e., the 2D fulldomain number of nodes). See the fort.15 file documentation on 3D baroclinic physics (particularly the explanation of various BCFLAG_TEMP values) for more details.
