SMS:Fleet Wind Files
Datasets can be read in from fleet wind files (*.fleetwind). SMS supports two different formats for fleet wind files, which are equivalent to NWS = 3 and NWS = 6 for PBL models. More information regarding the format for these files can be found in the ADCIRC user manual.
Opening the Files
When opening a fleet wind file, SMS will bring up a dialog to prompt the user for information regarding file type, grid parameters, time steps, and projection. Format:' Option to select between "Direction, speed (NWS 3)" and "X, Y, pressure (NWS 6)"
Existing Grid: If the grid specified in the fleet wind file already exists in SMS, a user can select to create the datasets on the existing grid
Grid Parameters: If the grid specified in the fleet wind file does not already exist, a user must specify the origin, cell size, and number of cells to create the grid.
Time (NWS 6 only): Specify the size and units of the time increment, as well as a reference time (if desired).
Projection: Specify the projection of the grid. If the projection is not specified, the grid will be created using the current projection.
When SMS reads a fleetwind file, it will create the following datasets on the grid:
- Wind (vector)
- Magnitude (scalar)
- Pressure (scalar) – NWS 6 only
