Hello everyone,

If someone could help me with this problem I would really appreciate it.

I am using WRF-Chem regionally with the RADM2 chemical mechanism and MADE/SORGAM aerosols (chem_opt = 2). I am also using biogenic emissions from MEGAN inventory and anthropogenic emissions. I am runing the simulations from a cluster using 30 processors. The problem comes when I activate the option gas_drydep_opt in order to use the dry deposition of the gases. It appears a Segmentation Fault error. When it is disactivated it works fine. Does someone know if it is a computational problem or if there is something wrong with the namelist?
Thanks in advance to anyone who could help.
