Thompson 2014 Scheme WRF V4.4


New member
I'm a new WRF model user, and I have been trying to set up my model using the mp_physics = 28
I followed this link to download the aerosol data and set up the namelist file WRF Model Users Site

While running the real.exe I get the following error (rsl.error.0000)
--- NOTE: bl_pbl_physics /= 4, implies mfshconv must be 0, resetting
Need MYNN PBL for icloud_bl = 1, resetting to 0
--- WARNING: For mp_physics == 28 and use_aero_icbc is true, recommend to turn on scalar_pblmix
resetting scalar_pblmix = 1
--- NOTE: RRTMG radiation is used, namelist value for o3input (ozone input) is used
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
NOTE: 3 namelist settings are wrong. Please check and reset these options

In the beginning, I had 5 namelist settings wrong, and I managed to fix some by following some of the recommendations from the user guide, but I can't fix the rest or even find which ones the rsl.error file are pointing out. I attached the namelist.wps and namelist.input

Please add the following options to your namelist.input (&physics):

mfshconv = 0, 0, 0, 0
icloud_bl = 0,
scalar_pblmix = 1, 1, 1, 1

Then try again and let me know whether the case works. thanks.

I solved it by adding this lines instead

ignore_iofields_warning = .true.,
debug_level = 0,
auxinput17_interval = 3600,
io_form_auxinput17 = 2,

Would you recommend I add yours instead?
No idea

I do not remember now where I read this information, but it worked.

I also made a test run by adding the options you suggested and the results look the same (apparently)
