Hi all
I am running tc.exe and real.exe and the results: successfully
but when running wrf.exe it has error like this:
Program received signal SIGSEGV: Segmentation fault - invalid memory reference.

any suggestions? thanks
Unfortunately we are aware of an ongoing issue with the TC bogus program. It changes the soil information to be corrupt. There have been no plans to fix the issue, thus far, but if you are able, you can take all the necessary fields from the new auxinput file and overwrite them in the original met_em file so that they maintain soil information. You should be able to use the NCL program to do this.
