INPUT_RECORD_FILE

Creates an input record file for each simulation.

Required Cards:

INPUT_RECORD_FILE

Including this keyword will print an input record file for each simulation. The input record file prints out the values of the parameters and options that were specified in the input file which PFLOTRAN internalized and used for the simulation. This information is useful to catch mistakes in the input file, such as duplicate definitions of a certain parameter (which one was used?) or parameters or options that were commented out on accident (commented parameters won’t be internalized, and thus won’t appear on the input record file).

The input record file will have the filename [pflotran].rec where [pflotran] is the name of the input file prefix.

Example:

SIMULATION
  SIMULATION_TYPE SUBSURFACE
  PROCESS_MODELS
    SUBSURFACE_FLOW flow
      ...
    /
    SUBSURFACE_TRANSPORT transport
      ...
    /
