I have an error regarding when running ./real.exe.
SIGSEGV: Segmentation fault - invalid memory reference.
I also had been tried running with mpirun -np 4 ./real.exe so, get the same error.

Hi Ikhsan,

The chemistry option you are using (202) has an extremely large amount of tracers that are put into the wrfinput file and is likely failing due to lack of memory. If possible, please try increasing the amount of processors you are using and/or supply each processor with additional memory.
