What is spinup time? And do we need to use restart files for

Postby vijayan » Mon Apr 12, 2021 3:29 am

Hi,
I would like to know what exactly the purpose of spinup time is.
Also, say if we want a 6 hour spinup, should we start the model six hours prior to the time when we actually want the model to begin?
Would that suffice or should we run the model for six hours, generate restart files at the end of the period and use those restart files to start the simulation that we are actually interested in?
I don't really understand how restart files work.
Please help me out.

Thanks!
