MPI_ABORT error when running real.exe


New member

I am trying to run the data for 1979 January in WRF. However when I try to run the real.exe I had this error:


The rsl.error.0000 message is like:

And my namelist.input is below.

Does anyone have an idea?

thank you!

According to your namelist.input file, you are using zero soil levels (num_metgrid_soil_levels). Do you have soil levels (for soil moisture and soil temperature) available in your input data? You will need to have at least 2 levels/layers to run WRF. In case it's useful, take a look at this FAQ that discusses the mandatory fields for running.
