[index] section of a configuration file contains options used to
determine the start and end years of climate indices (such as El Niño
[index] ## options related to producing nino index. # start and end years for El Nino 3.4 analysis. Use endYear = end to indicate # that the full range of the data should be used. If errorOnMissing = False, # the start and end year will be clipped to the valid range. Otherwise, out # of bounds values will lead to an error. In a "control" config file used in # a "main vs. control" analysis run, the range of years must be valid and # cannot include "end" because the original data may not be available. startYear = 1 endYear = end
Start and End Year¶
A custom config file should specify a start and end year for time axis.
errorOnMissing = False in the
input section and the start or end
year is beyond the range of the simulation, the range will be reduced to those
dates with available data and a warning message will be displayed. If
errorOnMissing = True, out of range year will produce an error.
