Dear WRF Support,

We try to run the WRF-CHEM model version 3.9 on a HPC cluster to study NO2 and SO2 air pollutants. The attached namelist configuration works perfectly in the case of using one domain. However, the wrf.exe executable hangs with a segmentation fault error (error log is attached) in using the nested domain. For simplicity, we are running chemistry with the dust-only option enabled. We highly appreciate your support to overcome the issue?

Thank you in advance,
Hayk Grigoryan
