real_em.F: Could not find the parent domain


Dear team,
I run the WPS successfully but get the following error message while running real_em
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
real_em.F: Could not find the parent domain
I attach my namelist wps and input and the error message. Are the metgrid file corrupt in some way? thanks for your help

Are you still experiencing this issue? I've looked at the code, but it's still not clear to me what the problem is, and I've never seen this error before. Since the issue seems to occur with domain 2, can you share your initial met_em* files for d01 and d02 so I can try to replicate the issue? If the files are too large to attach, see the home page of this forum for instructions on sharing large files. Thanks!
Hi, I guess the problem came because the ERA files were not too small and not exactly corresponding to the domain. At least I downloaded a larger domain and it worked. Thanks for your reply
