geogrid.exe didn't work with CGLC_MODIS_LCZ data

Hi forum,

I have been trying to use the CGLC_MODIS_LCZ data. When I re-linked the GEOGRID.TBL with GEOGRID.TBL.AWR_LCZ, and run the geogrid.exe it shows the error(geogrid.log):

INFORM: For LANDUSEF, couldn't find interpolator sequence for resolution default.

but when I delete the content about CGLC_MODIS_LCZ, the geogrid.exe excecuted successfully.

I also tried to add entries to the original LANDUSEF section like this (screen shot attached):
the geogrid.exe worked but the final geo_em.d04.nc only have 21 categories instead of 61.

The WPS V4.5 is used.

Could you please take a look at it? Thanks.

Best,
Tony

Hi Tony,
Can you also attach the full GEOGRID.TBL you're using? Can you also issue the following:
Code:
ls -ls /public1/home/sch3314/soft/Static/WPS_GEOG >& ls.txt

And then from inside your WPS directory, issue
Code:
ls -ls geogrid/GEOGRID.TBL* >& geogrid.txt

and attach the ls.txt and geogrid.txt files, as well? Thanks!

Hi kwerner,

Thanks for your reply. I have attached the files you mentioned.

I added a extension (.txt) to the GEOGRID.TBL so I can attach it here.

The files are attached. Thanks.
 
Thank you for sending those files! It looks like the problem is that, for some reason with this particular data, you need to specify it in the resolution for every domain. So if you change "geog_data_res" to the following in your namelist.wps, it should get past this error:

Code:
geog_data_res = 'cglc_modis_lcz+default', 'cglc_modis_lcz+default', 'cglc_modis_lcz+default', 'cglc_modis_lcz+default',

Thanks kwerner, this solved the provlem perfectly. now the geogrid data can be generated normally.

If I wanted to use cglc_modis_lcz data, but didn't turn on the city parameterization scheme, would it work and get reasonable results?

Since this is a different question than the original post, please open a new thread and post your question there. Thanks!
