Problems while running real.exe (first forecast try): forrtl: error (78): process killed (SIGTERM)


New member
This is my first time trying to run a forecast with WRF, and I think there is something that I am missing out, as I've been not able to run ./real.exe.
For this I downloaded GFS variables as input. The intended forecast corresponds to the dates 2023/07/11-2023/07/15.
The rsl.error.0017 shows the following error: forrtl: error (78): process killed (SIGTERM)
The rsl.error.0019 shows the following warnins:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault: address not mapped to object at address 0x35ffff8)
forrtl: severe (174): SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred

Both files are attached, along with the namelists.
Can anyone help me?

The error was that I had a missing input variable, which I suspected as the run stopped after searching for Psrf. I looked at the met_em files, and found no Psrf within the variables. :)
