MESH - A Community Hydrology - Land Surface Model

MESH_input_reservoir.tb0 is a WATFLOOD-compatible, EnSim/Green Kenue table file that contains reservoir outlet metadata, location, and optionally release data. The same file can be used with Standalone MESH.

MESH_input_reservoir.tb0 replaces MESH_input_reservoir.txt. The two files cannot be used concurrently.

MESH Configuration

Control flag

To use the file, add RESERVOIRFILEFLAG with the 'tb0' option to the list of control flags in MESH_input_run_options.ini:

MESH_input_run_options.ini (excerpt)
##### Control Flags #####
    1 # Number of control flags
To revert to using MESH_input_reservoir.txt, either remove the flag or replace 'tb0' with 'txt':

Start time

Depending how the file was created, the start time may be described in one of two ways. Only the following format is supported for the attribute:

MESH_input_reservoir.tb0 (excerpt)
:StartTime          2002/01/01 00:00:00.00000

If the file instead contains separate ':StartDate' and ':StartTime' attributes, they can be combined in the following way (with the original attributes commented):

MESH_input_reservoir.tb0 (excerpt)
#:StartDate          2002/01/01
#:StartTime          00:00:00.00000
:StartTime          2002/01/01 00:00:00.00000
