I got the following error when I executed the following command.
I downloaded the input data and put them in "/home/marjan/Models/WRF-CMAQ/WPS-4.5/geogrid/GEOGRID.TBL",
which is set in the namelist.wps as

geog_data_path = '/home/marjan/Models/WRF-CMAQ/WPS-4.5/geogrid/GEOGRID.TBL'

I don't understand where this comes from

Any idea about it?

marjan@Marjan:~/Models/WRF-CMAQ/WPS-4.5$ ./geogrid.exe

This is an error caused by incorrect location of static data.

Can you double check whether you have "topo_gmted2010_30s" saved under at /home/marjan/Models/WRF-CMAQ/WPS-4.5/geogrid/GEOGRID.TBL/?

I would also suggest that you download the static data, and save them somewhere else instead of under ./WPS-4.5/geogrid/GEOGRID.TBL/. This is because we would like the data and WPS codes to be located at different places.
