Non-periodic Elevation Boundary Condition File (fort.19)

Non-periodic, time varying elevation boundary condition file for “elevation specified” boundary nodes. This file is only read when an “elevation specified” boundary condition has been specified in the Grid and Boundary Information File (NOPE>0) and NBFR=0 in the Model Parameter and Periodic Boundary Condition File.

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


for k=1,NETA


end k loop


The first set of elevation values are provided at TIME=STATIM. Additional sets of elevation values are provided every ETIMINC.

Enough sets of elevation values must be provided to extend for the entire model run, otherwise the run will crash!
