Where are stored SAFRAN forcing files on Meteo-France systems

SAFRAN reanalysis has been updated on December 2018

The directory where you should take SAFRAN meteorological forcing files depend on which slopes you need and on the file system you are using.

In the CEN file system, SAFRAN files are stored on the following directories :

/rd/cenfic3/cenmod/era40/vortex/s2m/DOM_allslopes/reanalysis/meteo contains SAFRAN reanalysis for all massifs; 0°, 20° and 40° slope values, and 8 aspects
/rd/cenfic3/cenmod/era40/vortex/s2m/DOM_flat/reanalysis/meteo SAFRAN reanalysis for all massifs over flat area.
/rd/cenfic3/cenmod/era40/vortex/s2m/postes/reanalysis/meteo contains SAFRAN reanalysis for all stations (include topographic corrections of radiations)

where DOM represents the spatial domain which can be "alp" (Alps), "pyr" (Pyrénées), "cor" (Corsica)

From hendrix to any informatic resource in Toulouse, note that it is recommended to get SAFRAN files with vortex :
Here is an example : https://opensource.umr-cnrm.fr/projects/snowtools_git/repository/revisions/master/entry/snowtools/scripts/extract/vortex/get_reanalysis.py
You should not develop your own transfer script.

For information, SAFRAN are stored in the following directories:
/home/lafaysse/vortex/s2m/DOM_allslopes/reanalysis/meteo contains SAFRAN reanalysis for all massifs; 0°, 20° and 40° slope values, and 8 aspects
/home/lafaysse/vortex/s2m/DOM_flat/reanalysis/meteo contains SAFRAN reanalysis for all massifs over flat area.
/home/lafaysse/vortex/s2m/postes/reanalysis/meteo contains SAFRAN reanalysis for all stations (include topographic corrections of radiations)
