SNAP, the Severe Nuclear Accident Programme is a lagrangian type atmospheric dispersion model specialized on modelling dispersion of radioactive debris. A model description can be found at this link.
SNAP needs meteorological driver data from NWP models in sigma or eta-hybrid model-levels, in the netcdf format. The minimum list of parameters are for the surface layer:
And for the model layers:
Parameter names can be specified in readfield_nc.f90.
And example on how to set up downloading of freely available meteorological data from the NOAA GFS model can be found under src/naccident/examples/gfs/
SNAP requires the following libraries and programs to be installed for compilation
Create a file
current.mk in the
src directory. Use e.g the file
as a template. The most important parameters to modify are NCDIR and
BINDIR, where the final files will be installed to.
THE MIINC and MILIB should be uncommented.
src directory run then:
This will install
BINDIR. Run SNAP using
snap.input can be found in the directory src/naccident/examples/.
The master branch in git is used for development. Stable versions are tagged as 'vX.YY.ZZ'. Releases should also have a DOI for citation, see https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1155159 . For the user-interface snappy, we use tags like 'snappy-vX.YY.ZZ' with independent version numbers. Other tags are used internally.
The build system uses automatic versioning based on git tags and revision numbers and embeds this into the resulting program. If git or python3 is unavailable, this logic should be bypassed by setting the environment variable VERSION to some value, e.g.
env VERSION="some_version_number" make install
