Hi All,

I encountered a segmentation fault while trying to run convert_mpas on an output file for the large x5.6488066 horizontal mesh with 15km global and 3 km refinement grid spacing. The problem was related to the stack size limit and was resolved by removing this limit using the bash command

ulimit -s unlimited

The equivalent command for csh/tcsh is:

limit stacksize unlimited
