I have some questions about wrf-chem model as following.
1.If my wrfchemi_00z_d01 and wrfchemi_12z_d01 have ten layers which contains the low, mid and high pollution sources, will the wrf-chem model automatically interpolate these ten layers into the eta_levels from low to high? Which means that the lowest pollution source will be interpolated to the lowest level of eta_levels, the highest pollution source will be interpolated to the 10th level of eta_levels.
2.I noticed a strange phenomenon in rsl.out.0000 that when the model read emissions from wrfchemi_00z_d0*, it will show error trying to read metadata, but the model finished running successfully. Does this represent a failure to read the pollution source file? Will this change my simulation results significantly?
