Hi, I met a problem yesterday when I ran real.exe. This problem seems so strange.
I also see lots of other similar questions in the forum, but the solutions do not work. Kindly ask for help.

I guess this is an issue caused by landmask problem. Probably you didn't download the invariant surface variable file? Please see the attached file that describes how to get all ERA files necessary for running WRF.

Hi. I download ERA5 data from Copernicus Climate Data Store |. Here are the variables now I have:
(1) pressure level:
'geopotential',
'relative_humidity',
'specific_humidity','temperature',
'u_component_of_wind',
'v_component_of_wind'
(2) single level:
'10m_u_component_of_wind',
'10m_v_component_of_wind',
'2m_dewpoint_temperature',
'2m_temperature',
'land_sea_mask',
'mean_sea_level_pressure',
'sea_ice_cover',
'sea_surface_temperature',
'skin_temperature',
'snow_depth',
'soil_temperature_level_1',
'soil_temperature_level_2',
'soil_temperature_level_3',
'soil_temperature_level_4',
'surface_pressure',
'volumetric_soil_water_layer_1',
'volumetric_soil_water_layer_2',
'volumetric_soil_water_layer_3',
'volumetric_soil_water_layer_4'

But I do not know exactly what is 'invariant surface variable' you've mentioned? These data have successfully ran before, but they failed this time.

The values of tsk and tmn look more like values of pressure but not for temperature. I am not familiar with the data from Copernicus Climate Data Store . Are they in GRIB format? If so, what Vtable did you use to ungrid the data? If it is the Vtable provided in WPS< it is possible that this table doesn't match the data you downloaded.
Can you download data from CISL RDA, then rerun ungrib?
 
Hi everyone
I am facing the same issue. In spite of trying all the suggestions in the related posts I am getting the same error. I downloaded ERA5 data from CISL RDA. I tried Vtable.ERA-interim.pl and Vtable.ECMWF. I am using METGRID.TBL.ARW Kindly find my namelist and error file attached.

Hi Ming Chen,

Thanks for the tutorial to download the ERA5 from RDA. I still have a question:

When I try to download the data, the RDA site offers file which only have 1 single variable (like in your print screen on step #6).
Is there a way to download all the variables in a single file for each day?

The problem is that there are 16 files (i.e. variables) for all the pressure-level variables and 62 files for all the surface variables.
Does WRF really need all of these?

Henrique
 
Hi Henrique,

We cannot download all files and merge them to produce a single file, And I don't think it is necessary to do so.
It is necessary to download all those files that contain variables required by WPS/WRF. However, I am not aware that 62 surface variable files are needed to download. My impression is that we only need those "e5.oper.an.sfc.*.grb" files.

Thank you
I do try to run processors but it returned the same error message.
Hello Anie_Lal and ZHAO,
Just wanted to know ,if you were able to solve this issue?
I am using IMDAA data and getting the same error while running real.exe.

Can you please open a new post? NCAR likes to keep the topics separate. Since you are using different dataset
 
@Saqib @Anie_Lal
Your data don't include landsea mask and soilght (terrain height of ERA5). Please follow the instruction to download the invariant datafile and ungrib this file together with all other files you have downloaded. Remember to use Vtabel.ECMWF to ungrib these data.
 
@ZHAO
Would you please check the variable name for landmask in your intermediate file (i.e., the file you produced by ungrib)?
The name should be LANDSEA. I am suspicious that the name in your file (land_sea_mask) may not be correct?

I was able to solve this error.It has to do with the incompatibility of grid dimensions of your forcing data and georgid domain.
In case this is not solving the issue, try using different landuse data.
 
@ Saqib

Would you please clarify how you fix the issue? I believe that grid dimensions of your forcing data and WPS geogrid domain don't need to be consistent.
