Respected Sir,

Initial conditions required for running GEFS are following :

1) 09/06/2014 to 11/06/2014
2) 07/10/2014 to 09/10/2014
3) 24/10/2014 to 26/10/2014
4) 03/04/2015 to 05/04/2015
5) 17/10/2011 to 19/10/2011
6) 01/12/2011 to 03/12/2011

Along with the initial conditions , Kindly provide us the output files of GEFS run initiated on 10/06/2014 for each job (eg. JGEFS_INIT_SEPARATE, JGEFS_INIT_ET, JGEFS_INIT_COMBINE etc.)and output files of individual ensemble members.
This will help us to validate our test run.

Dear Renu, 

Can you please specify what period you are looking for the input files ? Based on that, we can offload them from the tape (if we have the same periods) and provide back to you. Thanks.

Respected Sir, 

​R​eference to our brief discussion on GEFS ​activity at ​IITM during ​your recent visit for ​ Monsoon Mission Review Meeting ​February, 2015. We are in the process of installing the GEFS at​ IITM ​ HPC. We​ aim to evaluate GEFS by ​ incorporat​ing​ the ​latest ​ physics modification of CFS ​carried out at IITM​ for climate free run​ . ​Initially​ we ​would like​ to run GEFS without Data Assimilation. In this ​connection,​ we need Input files required to run GEFS. ​We​ would be highly obliged, if you could share the GEFS input files to test​ GEFS run . 

Thanking you

Subject: GEFS Source Code 

Dear Phani, 

Operational GEFS source code can be accessed with the following ftp site : 


Total file sizes are little over 1 GB. Let us know, if you have any problem accessing the files, then we will figure out some other ways to send those files. Further information about GEFS model can be found here : 

If you have any specific questions about the GEFS source code, please contact monsoondesk directly and I will find the appropriate person to answer your question. Thanks.
