I'm trying to run WRF. It worked fine until real.exe. But if I try mpirun -np 10 wrf.exe, it won't run and I keep getting the same error. I attach some files. Please kindly help me with how to fix the error...

Hi,
It's hard to say for sure why the model is stopping, but I have a few suggestions.

1) I see that you're using wrfv3.6. Is there a specific reason why you need to use this older version? That code is nearly 10 years old now and several modifications and bug fixes have been implemented into the code since then. We no longer support code that old. If you're able, I would strongly recommend using a newer version of the model.

2) Your domain sizes are too small. For any realistic results, each domain needs to be at least 100x100. Take a look at the best practices mentioned on this page to help guide your domain set-up.

3) I see that you're using grid nudging. You should test to see if this runs without grid nudging (and any other special options) first. That way you can rule out whether the issue is the settings or the input data, etc.

4) Regarding input - often when the model stops right at the beginning, it means there is an issue with the input data. Take a look at What is the most common reason for a segmentation fault? for some additional information.

If you try this with the latest version of WRF (V4.5.2) and make the modifications I've mentioned above, and verify that the input data is all okay, and it still fails, please package all of your rsl* files into a single *.tar file and attach that, along with the modified namelist.input file. Thanks!
