Dear all,

I am using IPSL CMIP5 model to run WPS.
However, only times 00,06,12, and 18 can have output after the ./metgrid.exe run. The outputs only have one level of data, that is: BOTTOM-TOP_GRID_DIMENSION = 1 ;
The ungrib.log, metgrid.log and the ncdump -h met_em output are attached here

Thank you and the best

Hi Gillian,
How many levels should the dataset have? It looks like ungrib is also only processing a single level for each time period. Is it possible that the Vtable you're using is not set up to recognize the correct codes in the gribbed input files?
