"No average surface temperature for use with inland lakes"


New member
There is an error "No average surface temperature for use with inland lakes" when I run real.exe. One solution I found is change "surface_input_source=3" to 1 in the namelist.input. But it didn't work.
There is no error or fatal information in the rsl.error.0000, too. wrfbdy_d01 and wrfinput_d01 have been produced, but the files for d02 didn't exist.
I use the FNL data in my work. The rsl.error.0000, namelist.input are uploaded.
Thanks for your help!

Apologies for the delay in response. Are you still having trouble with this issue? The message you're seeing (No average surface temperature...) shouldn't be causing any problem. It seems more that real.exe just hangs. I don't really think this is causing the issue, but can you try using 8x8 (64 total) processors, instead of 8x16? I expect it will still fail. If so, please package all of the rsl* files into a single *.tar file and attach that so I can take a look. Thanks!
