The Naming Convention

A major goal of the CSM project is to facilitate a wide variety of coupled model configurations. CSM has adopted a naming convention to help identify and organize various simulations.
The convention is < series > < case > . < run > (eg. "b003.05", read "b three dot five"), where :
is a single letter indicating which components of the system are active models vs. "dummy" models. Dummy models are generally non-active models that simply feed archived data to the coupler.
is a three digit number distinguishing major variations within a series.
is a two digit number distinguishing minor variations within a series/case.
