In this chapter, you will learn more about HEMCO restart files.
Do I need a HEMCO restart file for my initial spin-up run?¶

with a run directory may only be used for the date and time indicated
in the filename. HEMCO will automatically recognize when a restart
file is not available for the date and time required, and in that case
HEMCO will use default values to initialize those fields. You can also
force HEMCO to use the default initialization values by setting
HEMCO_RESTART to false in
