WPS4.4 static data issue and metgrid issue

Hello,

I am running WRF and WPS V4.4 and downloaded the static data from Static Data Downloads. When running geogrid.exe, it's showing the following caution:
" Optional fields not processed by geogrid:
IRRIGATION (priority=1, resolution='default', path='/Shared/lss_gvillari/WPS_data/geog/irrigation/fao/')
"
But, there is no fao folder in the irrigation data from the above link. Though geogrid is running successfully, is it a big issue?


In addition, after running metrid.exe though it ran successfully, it is showing the following thing:
"
sadislam@argon-lc-g14-32 WPS-4.4]$ ./metgrid.exe > metgrid.out
Note: The following floating-point exceptions are signalling: IEEE_OVERFLOW_FLAG IEEE_UNDERFLOW_FLAG IEEE_DENORMAL

"

Let me know how to solve these issues.

Thanks.

Hi,
Neither of these are an issue. The geogrid message is just indicating there are optional fields that aren't being processed, which is okay because you haven't requested to process those. Irrigation is a specific field used for a very specific purpose. The metgrid message prints out with certain compilers, and was originally put in the code for testing purposes.

Thanks for the clarification. But is there a way to get the irrigation data with the fao folder? Static Data Downloads page does not have it.
 
Hi,
If you scroll down further on that page you linked, you'll see a section (in green) for data mandatory for specific applications, and you can see that if you're planning to use the surface irrigation schemes when running WRF, you will need that data, and it includes a link for downloading. If you aren't planning to use that specific scheme, then you don't need it.
