Namelist error when running 1 way nested Katrina case study

Hi,

I am running WRF on the hurricane Katrina case study in the WRF online tutorial. So far, I've gotten up to the part before I have to run real.exe in the /WRFV3/test/em_real directory. I am at the point where I need to run real.exe for the first domain. Here's the case study webpage:


When I try to run real.exe, it outputs this error:

Namelist dfi_control not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in dfi_control
Namelist tc not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in tc
Namelist scm not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in scm

Its something to do with the namelist.input file there nothing serious Please check again because i think
they must be a one more line before
"
Namelist dfi_control not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in dfi_control
Namelist tc not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in tc
Namelist scm not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in scm

-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE: <stdin> LINE: 5292
Errors while reading one or more namelists from namelist.input.
------------------------------------------

"
where explains where the namelist might have gone wrong
example:

[pascal@pascal run]$ real.exe
Error while reading namelist domains
Namelist dfi_control not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in dfi_control
Namelist tc not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in tc

-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE: <stdin> LINE: 5292
Errors while reading one or more namelists from namelist.input.
-------------------------------------------

'''''''' here something went wrong in the domain part of the namelist
or

[pascal@pascal run]$ real.exe
Error while reading namelist time_control
Namelist dfi_control not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in dfi_control
Namelist tc not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in tc

Namelist fire not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in fire
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE: <stdin> LINE: 5292
Errors while reading one or more namelists from namelist.input.
-------------------------------------------
****, in the second example you should pay attention on the 1st part of the namelist that is &time_control
so check out what comes 1st before "
Namelist dfi_control not found in ......
"

All the best

thanks for the help! it appears that there was something wrong with my installation. I reinstalled everything and it works now. :)

I am having this exact problem with my code, I believe it may be a problem in my namelist.input.domain.middle file, but I'm not sure. The following is a sample from the file:

Code: Select all
&domains
 time_step                           = 18,
 time_step_fract_num                 = 0,
 time_step_fract_den                 = 1,
 max_dom                             = 1,
 s_we                                = 1,
 e_we                                = 91,
 s_sn                                = 1,
 e_sn                                = 91,
 s_vert                              = 1,
 e_vert                              = 45,
 num_metgrid_levels                  = 27
 dx                                  = 3000,
 dy                                  = 3000,
grid_id                             = 1,
 parent_id                           = 0,
 i_parent_start                      = 27,
 j_parent_start                      = 27,
 parent_grid_ratio                   = 1,
 parent_time_step_ratio              = 1,
 feedback                            = 1,
 smooth_option                       = 0
 nproc_x                             = 1,
 nproc_y                             = 16,


I'm thinking that it has to do with the grid_id=1, when it should equal 2. Unfortunately, the namelist.input.template file is not writing the grid id as 2 in this case. If this is the case, how do I fix this? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

You are missing a comma on the num_metgrid_levels line.

I am having the same problem running katrina example with multiple input times. The real.exe gave me lots of problems. Here is the errors:

@elianapecorari:
"start_hour" and "end_second" are definitely wrong! Does your namelist.input really look like this or is it some copy & paste error?! Try out fortnml (http://www.meteo.unican.es/wiki/cordexwrf/SoftwareTools/FortNml), this is really a nice (and free) tool to edit your namelists and make them much more comfortable to read. Since it is free, you can also edit it regarding your concerns.

@elianapecorari:

I assume that start_hour is an copy & paste error, just as jan mentioned.

But you do get "----- ERROR while reading namelist time_control ------",
so perhaps end_hour and end_second might be really messed up in your namelist.
("end_hour vortex.htm" and "end_second vortex.htm")

hi all, I got the same problems and try to fix my start and end_day, but still error
I found that this forum's posts almost since 2012.
Do you have any facebook page in lieu of this forum, if you have, please send me the link to contact with the WRF users.

Thank a lot!
