Dear Tao,
I'm a new cp2k user that wants to use umbrella sampling to calculate PMF, 
with the following code something will be print in the **.metadynLog. 
However, I am not sure what is the meaning and unit of the data, and how 
could it be used to calculate the energy? 
Many thanks for your help.


       COLVAR 1
       SCALE 1.
     MD 1
