    I can't use multithreading to run wrf-chem, but single thread is ok.

    Hello, everyone! I encountered problems when running wrf.exe in WRF-4.4.1. I used anthro_emis to process edgar data and mozbc to optimize chemical boundary. I successfully ran wrf.exe with a single thread, but it can't work with more than two threads. Attached are the namelist.input and...

    Adding an emission of a new chemical

    Hi, I am trying to add in new chemicals into WRF-Chem. To do this, I Copied and renamed a chemical mechanism from the KPP (in my case, it was RADM2_KPP) I renamed the files inside my new chemical mechanism to reflect the new name I adjusted the chemical equation file to reflect the chemical...

    WRF CHEM 4.4.2 -- Simulation stops when using Single Layer Urban Canopy Model (forrtl: severe: SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred)

    Dear community, I have been trying to run WRF CHEM simulation using the single layer UCM (sf_urban_physics = 1), like the title says. However, no matter what I try the simulation stops after some period of time. I have conducted successful simulations using no urban (sf_urban_physics = 0) or...

    Query on the mapping of aerosol species in mozbc input file for RADM2-MADE/SORGAM chemical mechanism while using CAM-Chem output for chemical IC/BC

    Dear everyone, I ran WRF-Chem successfully with the RADM2-MADE/SORGAM chemistry option (chem_opt=11) using MOZART4 data to include chemical IC/BC in the wrfbdy and wrfinput files. But the MOZART4 data is not available after January 21, 2018. So, to simulate the recent periods, I have to use the...

    Edit WRF dust emission and transportation scheme.

    Dear reader, For my MSc thesis i'm using WRF to model the emission and transport of dust polluted with microplastics. I'm using the AFWA dust emission scheme and the GOCART dust transportation scheme. Due to the microplastics having a different shape, size and density when compared to the dust...

    Query regarding the calculation of Aerosol-Cloud Interaction using WRF-Chem

    Dear all, I have a small query regarding the computation of the perturbation in atmospheric variables due to aerosol-cloud interaction (ACI) using the WRF-Chem model. In the case of aerosol-radiation interaction (ARI), the perturbation in atmospheric parameters can be computed by taking the...

    The wrfout file does not contain any aerosol concentration variables

    Hi everyone, I want to perform WRF-Chem simulations with MOSAIC options to study aerosol mass and number concentrations in each bin. The wrfout** file does not contain any aerosol concentration variables. I am wondering if there is errors in the namelist settings (namelist.input) and...

    Can WRF-Chem apply to Antarctica?

    Hi everyone, My current research efforts concern the study of nitrate levels in Antarctica by WRF-Chem 4.4.2. (chem_opt = 202). Nevertheless, the current modeling results are significantly lower than our observed data. It is possible that the discrepancy is caused by the emission inventory used...
