Error in running real.exe


New member
I want to run WRF V4.0 driven by era5 single level datas, to assess the surface parameterization schemes. However, there are mutiple errors when I running the real.exe with different types in namelist.input.
This is my namelist.input.

1. I am wondering that why I should adjust the parameters such as e_vert, p_top_requested and so on, rather than deleting them?
2. There are various errors when I modify the relative parameters
2.1 When I delete the e_vert and p_top_requested, it shows that2.1.png
2.2 When I adopt its advice, to set the p_top_requested=95078.2656, it shows that

Does anybody have further information on that.
Any hints will be greatly appreciated!!!

Although you are only interested in the surface, you will still need the full 3d column of atmospheric variables to run WRF. The model is incapable of simulating with just a single level. Take a look at the Required Input for Running WRF section of our Users' Guide.
