E.3 DESCRIPTION OF THE DETAILED MESSAGE LAYOUT

     Three types of messages can be produced by the models during the processing of input runstream images and during model calculations.  These are described briefly below:

·    Errors that will halt any further processing, except to identify additional error conditions (type E);

·    Warnings that do not halt processing but indicate possible errors or suspect conditions (type W); and

·    Informational messages that may be of interest to the user but have no direct bearing on the validity of the results (type I).

     The messages have a consistent structure which contains the pathway ID, indicating which pathway the messages are generated from; the message type followed by a three‑digit  message number; the line number of the input runstream image file for setup messages (or the meteorology hour number for runtime messages); the name of the module (e.g. the subroutine name) from which the message is generated; a detailed message corresponding to the message code; and an 8‑character simple hint to help the user spot the possible source of the problem.

     The following is an example of a detailed message generated from the CO pathway:

CO E100    8 EXPATH: Invalid Pathway Specified. The Troubled Pathway is FF
