I tried to run real.exe, but it stopped and raised the following error message in rsl.error.0000:
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
not enough eta levels to reach p_top
Abort(1) on node 0 (rank 0 in comm 0): application called MPI_Abort(MPI_COMM_WORLD, 1) - process 0
This is because your p_top is too high above the top of your forcing data. Please double check your data to figure out its top, then specify p_top to be well below it.
You may need to check the source of your input data to determine how high in the atmosphere the data go. The default p_top_requested setting in namelist.input is 5000, and that is typically a good value for most data, but your data may be different.
