Hi,
i want to produce a be.dat file from a month simulation period. the use of cv option 5 gave the fllowing error in the gen_be_diags.
At line 2551 of file da_gen_be.f (unit = 23, file = 'gen_be_stage3.chi_u.dat')
Fortran runtime error: End of file

Error termination. Backtrace:

[1] Gather regression coefficients.

[2] Gather vertical error eigenvectors, eigenvalues.

waht is this due to? here is also the gen_be_wrapper.ksh script i used.

The error is "end of file". That means file "gen_be_stage3.chi_u.dat" is empty or doesn't have enough
data for the program.

Does this mean my wrfout files are wrong? or where this error came from?
 
It's file "gen_be_stage3.chi_u.dat" that has the problem.

Since I've not used "gen_be", I can't give you more.
 
Yes, i managed to solve the problem. In fact i produced a single one long forecast and copy the wrfout files to the correct directories. But i noticed that i had to produce separate 24 hours forecasts. One needs also to try some ncl plots to check the results ( the gen_be_plot_wrapper.ksh would be a good starting point). An explanation on how to generate this be.dat is found here:

Hi, metroid thanks for updating your progress.

So If we need to generate a be.dat file from a month long series of 24hr forecasts, do you have a practical and fast way of running all these single 24hr runs in a more "automated" ,"simultaneous" way, if you are running wrf on a single multicore machine?

Thanks
 
hi,
I've got access to a HPC, so i run the mpi jobs on between 1 and 6 nodes (each node is a xeon 12 cores/24threads cpu) using batch scripts. you can reduce the amount of time from 1 month to at least 15 days (this this the minimum for scientific research purposes). Another good option is to use cv_options 7 or 6.
Good luck!
