Dear colleagues,

I tried to run WRF-Chem simulations using chem_opt equal to 12 or 42. I have trouble while converting the emission. Before I run the convert.exe, I used racmsorg.inp to create the boundary condition and generate the wrfinput and the wrfbddy files. However, when I run convert.exe, I got the error message shown as follows:

RACMSORG_AQCHEM chemistry option is highly experimental and not recommended for use.

-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------


ERROR: experimental option selected, please contact wrfchemhelp for assistance.

Would anyone please kindly give me some suggestions on this issue?

Thanks a lot in advance.
