Build, compile and run ICON-ART

History of this page

September 2019: Write the recipe for Piz Daint supercomputers at CSCS.

To have access to the C2SM-ICON organisation and the ICON-ART code, please contact colombe.siegenthaler@env.ethz.ch.


On daint.cscs.ch:

1) Go in the $SCRATCH directory


2) Clone the C2SM ICON-ART repository and go in your new local repository

Caution: ART is a submodule in this repository, to download the ART code at the same time, do not forget --recursive

git clone --recursive git@github.com:C2SM-ICON/icon4art.git [foldername_local_repo_you_choose]
cd [foldername_local_repo_you_choose]

3) Configure. The list of currently available compilers can be found on the Available Compiler Version for ICON related codes page

./configure --with-fortran=[compiler_you_want] --with-art

4) Compile


5) Work in process: Run a test case of the ICON model tutorial given bei DWD and KIT in 2017 (pdf of the tutorial can be found on the wiki page dedicated to the ICON model documentation)

Input files

Please consult the Build, Compile and run ICON prior to icon- page to see where the input files are on the different super-computers.


  • ART code not found
I get the following error message at compilation:

   USE mo_art_radiation_aero,            ONLY: art_radiation_aero
Fatal Error: Can't open module file 'mo_art_radiation_aero.mod' for reading at (1): No such file or directory
check that you downloaded the art code. The code should be in [folder_name_you_choose]/src/art. If the folder is empty or does not exist, updade the submodule:
git submodule init
git submodule update --recursive
