Hi all,

I am running a long simulation with several restarts. I already have about 180 days of simulation done when I encountered a "segmentation fault - invalid memory reference" error. I am running wrf on a single processor and I don't have any CFL errors before the segmentation fault. I don't see what could cause this error, especially after the simulation running for so long without problem. Does someone has an idea?
For more details, I attached the namelist.input and the error file.

Thank you,
