WRF stop without error after running for month


New member
Dear All,

I am currently running WRF on tracer mode, and I've encountered an issue. The code compiles successfully, and WRF runs up to wrfout_d01_2019-02-21_06:00:00. However, after this point, WRF stops generating the next wrfout without displaying any errors. I have thoroughly checked all met, wrfchemi, and wrffire files, and they all appear to be in order. I also attempted the solutions mentioned in previous threads, but unfortunately, they did not resolve the issue in my case.

For your reference, I have attached the namelist and rsl files.

Best regards,

I believe one of the issues is that you're using too many processors. Take a look at Choosing an Appropriate Number of Processors and see if reducing the number helps. If not, it looks like you're using an old version of WRF, so upgrading to a newer version may help. This may also be specific to wrf-chem. If you are able to run this when not using any wrf-chem, you will need to post your thread in the wrf-chem section of this forum.
