Dear madam or Sir;
I get a problem when i gen_be for GSI with the script in WRFDA. The problem message is in the attachment gen_be_stage2_gsi.log. And the attachment also contain the script that i use. The problem,forrtl: severe (29): file not found, unit 10, file /nuist/u/home/keyu/scratch/fkm_dir/gen_be/wrfda_gsi/be_for_gsi_d01/run_gsi_be_lat_bin_size_1.0_lnps/working/stage1_gsi/f, is appear in the step of stage2,but when i see the code of gen_be_stage1_gsi.f90,i have not see the file f is generated in the step of stage1.So the error is very strange. I have tried different versions of WRFDA, the errors are the same. So i hope get your help. Thank you very much.
Best wishes!

Hello,i know why this error appealed, because the length of filename exceed the limit, so the error appeal when read the file. But i have another question,what the meaning of those three parameters----LESS_LEVELS_FROM_TOP、LAT_BINS_IN_DEG、DEBUG in the wrapper script--------wrapper_gen_be_gsi.ksh in WRFDA, can you explain to me in detail? Thank you very much.
