Hi Ashley,

Can you provide a bit more information on the problem you are having? I find that the more specific you are, the easier it is for people to help on this support group. 

Section 6.3.1 in the docs (see below) describes how to set up your data.obcs file, also look at verification/exp4 for an example w/ open boundaries.

If you want to restore your boundaries to the prescribed ICs then you’ll need to generate binary files for each boundary that is specified in data.obcs,

I am having trouble finding what is needed in terms of the data.obcs file as well as any any additional binary files for temperature that are required. Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks.
