real.exe error


New member
I try to run real.exe but I get an error. How can I fix this error?
Here are the namelists and error file.

The error in your rsl.error.0000 file is:

ERROR in psfc: flag_psfc =  1, flag_soilhgt =  1, flag_slp =  0, sfcp_to_sfcp = F
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE:  <stdin>  LINE:    1426
not enough info for a p sfc computation

Based on some of the settings in your namelist, it looks like you may be using GFS data. If so, can you take a look at this post, and specifically the suggestion made by ManPoint at the end of the thread to see if that helps you at all?
