Hi all,

When running WRF-Chem 3.6, my program stopped quickly after running wrf.exe. I checked the rsl.error and rsl.out files, there is no error message leading to the termination. In addition, I have successfully run with the same settings in namelist.input using WRF-Chem 3.9 on the same server. I don't know what is the problem here and how can I solve this?

I attached the rsl files and my namelist.input. Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks!
