issues with spinup of LIS



While perfoming the spin up, Im facing some issues with lis. after doing a 1 year spin up from 2001 01 01 to 2002 01 01 over the indian domain with GDAS and TRMM as met and rainfall forcings using Noah 3.6 LSM i noticed that there was no difference between the 1st and 2nd year spin up.


looking at the outputs through each day at 00 hrs i noticed that slowly the soil moisture was increasing to the same point. After which there was no change, going through the lislog outputs, i noticed that there were some warnings that lis is unable to read particular gdas files. other than that I dont know.

The lis.config file, I mainly followed the LIS user guide and a few test case's lis.config files.


I'm attaching the gif file of how the outputs look per day for the top layer, lislog and lis.config files. If anyone can help, that'll be great!


Thank you

Noel C.
