WRF-SCM soil data input

Hi. I am working with WRF-SCM, version 3.9.

At the moment I am hoping to be able to run with varying choices of sf_surface_physics. The supplied version is "2", the NOAH scheme.

In the README.scm file, it is stated that the following is input from input_soil:

z(surface), TSK (skin temp in K), TMN (deep soil temp in K)
and then other stuff.

However, inside module_initialize_ideal.F drilling down to subroutine_read_soil, the read statement is:

read(11,*) zs(1), tmn, tsk.

Assuming that this IS where the soil data is read in in these ideal cases, which is correct?

z, tsk, tmn
z, tmn, tsk

Yep, the source code is always right ...

(also checked with my previous simulations with 3.8 which use the same order in source code)
