Note this warning in your logfile:

WARNING: SAPRC99_MOSAIC_4BIN_VBS2_4BIN chemistry option is highly experimental and not recommended for use.

Sometimes an error message will show up in the offending core, do any of your other rsl.out/errors show anything else before the segmentation fault?

Can you successfully run with later versions?

I have also tried to run 4.1 which is still the problem above. WRF-CHEM3.6.1 also has the "WARNING:SAPRC99_MOSAIC_4BIN_VBS2_4BIN chemistry option is highly experimental and not recommended for use ",But it works.
THANK YOU, I downloaded anthro_emiss from the following URL ( run WRF-chem3.6.1 with this.Below is the namelist. Input
