Dear WRF developers and users,

when I changed the PBL option from YSU (1) to MYJ (2), running ./wrf.exe got the error
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
module_physics_init: use myjsfc scheme for this pbl option
I had run successfully with YSU, but I cannot find out why running with MYJ got this error.
Please help to give me some suggestions. I have attached the namelist.wps and namelist.input for more information.

Thank you.

Oh, sorry for asking the simple question.
The error means the myjsfc scheme should be used with MYJ option.
So I set sf_sfclay_physics = 2, and make a new run (i.e. restart = 'false'), then the simulation is running well.

Thanks for your reading
