Hi,
Make sure to check the number of levels in each of your met_em* files and make sure you don't have any other lingering met_em* files in your running directory that the model is potentially viewing. If neither of those helps, please package your met_em files into a single *.tar file (not *.rar) and send it to me. It will likely be too large to attach here, so take a look at the homepage of this forum for instructions on sending large files. Thanks!

Hi kwerner, thanks for your answer.
I send attached the met_em files for your reference.
Thank you very much for your help

Thanks for sending those. I issued this command to check the number of levels in each met_em* file you sent.

Code: Select all

ncdump -h met_em.d01.2021-07-28_00:00:00.nc | grep BOTTOM-TOP_GRID_DIMENSION
And they all give a value of 34, EXCEPT for the met_em.d01.2021-07-30_00:00:00.nc, which only has 29 levels.

I'm not sure why this happened, but you will need to go back to the WPS process and make sure your files are all complete.

Hi, thanks for your help
I have checked the WPS files and can't find the error.
According to what was found, in June 2019 there was a GFS update, and I don't know if this will be something similar
Please see the following link

Hi,
I don't think that's the case. Are you using GFS data? If so, where are you obtaining it? I got GFS 0.25 degree data from the CISL RDA site and tested it. Every time period contains 34 vertical levels.

Hi sorry for the delay in answering you. Yes, I am using GFS Data.
I downloaded the fnl_20210730_00_00.grib2 file again and now it runs correctly.
I don't know why I downloaded the file wrong initially.
I greatly appreciate your help as it was possible to solve the problem :)
