Running the model

When the input data and the model configuration have been prepared, a model run can be started either using the openamundsen command line utility (openamundsen config_file.yml), or from within Python using the following syntax:

import openamundsen as oa

config = oa.read_config('config_file.yml')  # read in configuration file
model = oa.OpenAmundsen(config)  # create OpenAmundsen object and populate unspecified parameters with default values
model.initialize()  # read in input data files, initialize state variables etc.  # run the model
