I recently ttried to change values for USGS 33-cat z0 in LANDUSE.TBL. Real.exe finished without error but when running wrf.exe it clearly did not like my changes - debug mode showed it exited at lsm module on domain 1. My question is, if I change the z0 values in LANDUSE.TBL do I also need to update the table in VEGPARM.TBL for consistency? I had changed the values from the default to those used by Noah-MP in MPTABLE.TBL but since the units are different perhaps I made a mistake in converting the values.

Please see attached namelist.input and edited portion of LANDUSE.TBL.

If you run with NoaH or RUC scheme, you need to modify VEGPARM.TBL. This is because the two schemes read surface parameters from VEGPARM.TBL.
