error in the anthro_emis command

Hi everyone.,

I am new to wrf_chem, I am trying to use the anthro_emis command in the input file. I am studying atmospheric Hg, I see there is no mercury in the EDGAR data.

Please assist
Thank you

You are correct in that EDGAR does not contain mercury emission data. You will need to find an inventory that does or make some assumptions about a scaling factor from another quantity in the EDGAR database. As for your problem running the command. It does not look like you have successfully compiled the program (i.e., when you try to invoke the command, it tells you "no such file or directory"). You will need to use the make_anthro command.
