Having problems running the WRF Preprocessing Sysmte (WPS)?

./metgrid.exe WARNING: Field PSFC has missing values

Postby n9405169 » Wed Aug 19, 2009 2:50 pm

Hello, I hope somebody can help me with a problem that has been bugging me for days!

My problem is that ./metgrid.exe does not run to completion. It stops when it encounters "missing values" in the field PSFC and the derived field PRES, both at the location (i,j)=(1,1).

Here is a brief background:

I have created my own Intermediate files (since the data I wanted to use was not in GRIB form). I'm pretty sure that these intermediate files are OK because ./util/rd_intermediate.exe can successfully read their contents (please see below; 'Results from rd_intermediate').

Also, ./geogrid.exe works without any problems.

It is ./metgrid.exe which breaks down. The log file shows that the fields are read from the intermediate files without problem: the problems appear when the code attempts to "create the field PRES". It claims that the field PSFC at level 200100 has missing data at the point (1,1), but a quick look at the output from the rd_intermediate.exe code shows that PSFC does have a value at this point (and it is 101495.687500 Pa).

Below are copies of the results from rd_intermediate and metgrid.log.

If anybody is able to help me, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks in advance!
Best wishes,
Louise

Re: ./metgrid.exe WARNING: Field PSFC has missing values

It looks like you are using a 5x5 domain with 4 km grid spacing as your input. The domain is near Dugway, at about 1300 m elevation. It seems to me your PSFC field is actually PMSL. The PSFC should be about 880 mb or so, not 1014. Next, are you sure your wrf domain is completely inside your first guess domain? Finally, you should rerun metgrid with debug_level=500 to get more printout. There isn't enough information to determine exactly what's wrong.

Hello dcvz,

Thanks for your prompt response! Your advice is great!

You are correct that my input data is 5x5 with 4 km spacing. The discrepancy you noted in the PSFC field is probably explained by the fact that my input data did not include this field (or a few others, including SKINTEMP) so I was forced to take some values from the fields used in the online tutorial case. I know this is cheating and these fields will not necessarily fit well with the rest of my data, but I hoped that having the fields present would be enough for me to run the code, just until I obtain the necessary data properly.

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean when you ask if I'm sure that my wrf domain is completely inside my first guess domain. I am using the geographical data from the online tutorial (I downloaded all resolutions) and I thought this covered the whole of the US. Geogrid works OK so I assume it's not this geographical data you're asking about?

Finally, I have made a run with debug_level=500 and the following lines are now printed at the bottom of the metgrid.log file:

Does this help at all? Thanks again for your time and advice! I really hope I'll get this working one of these days!

Cheers,

What I meant was your wrf domain (the one produced by geogrid and which can be plotted with plotgrids) needs to be completely inside the first guess domain (which is a 5x5, 4 km grid). So your wrf domain is smaller than 20 km x 20 km and is near Dugway, UT? If part of your wrf domain is outside of this area, metgrid will fail.

Hello again,

Thanks for clarifying! I'm learning more every day and your advice is really helpful!

I've checked that the domain specified in the "geogrid" section of "namelist.wps" is now smaller than the first guess domain (5x5, 4km) and is centered at the same position as my guess domain, thus it must lie entirely within the guess domain now.

It was previously set to be the same size as the guess domain, but I've made it smaller now (17.5 km x 17.5 km).

However, I still get exactly the same error message when running metgrid.exe (after re-running metgrid). It still says that PRES and PSFC have missing values at (i, j)=(1, 1).

Any further ideas?

Thanks again!
Best wishes,
Louise

Hello again,

I was looking more closely at the example given on the online tutorial and I see that the number of GRIDPOINTS in the WRF domain is smaller than the number given in the data set (rd_intermediate said that the data set had 185 x 129 whereas the namelist.wps for geogrid had 74 x 61).

Does this mean that as well as covering an area smaller than my initial 20 km x 20 km "guess domain", I must also do so with a number of grid-points smaller than 5 x 5 (the resolution of my input data)? I had thought I could specify the resolution that I wanted on the WRF grid, since I thought that was the whole point of the interpolation routines of metgrid. Have I got this very wrong?!!

Thanks again for your help,

Best wishes,
Louise

Yeah! I've finally got metgrid running!

You were right, dcvz, my WRF grid was not entirely within my input data domain. My mistake -- I had thought my input data reference location was its centre, however it was actually its south-west corner! Now I have managed to run metgrid with any number of grid points I want (changing dx and dy accordingly!). So please ignore my last question about the number of grid-points! I was just getting myself confused!

I'm going to try to run ./real.exe now, but may have to post a question in the "WRF runtime problems" section in a little while....

Good news for now though! Thanks very much for your help!
Cheers,
Louise

PROBLEM SOLVED.

Hi everyone.

I was trying to run WRF 3.6.1 with the NCEP FNL dataset http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds083.2/index.html#!description. My namelist.wps (part of it) is as follows:

&geogrid
parent_id = 1, 1, 2,
parent_grid_ratio = 1, 3, 3,
i_parent_start = 1, 41, 30,
j_parent_start = 1, 20, 24,
e_we = 90, 94, 73,
e_sn = 62, 37, 31,
geog_data_res = '10m', '2m', '30s',
dx = 27000,
dy = 27000,
map_proj = 'mercator',
ref_lat = 55.000,
ref_lon = -4.000,
truelat1 = 55.000,
truelat2 = 0,
stand_lon = -4.000,

That yielded the following pressure levels in ungrib.log file:

PRES TT UU VV RH HGT PSFC PMSL (and others)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2013.0 O O O O O O X O
2001.0 X X X X O X O X
1000.0 X X X X X
975.0 X X X X X
950.0 X X X X X
925.0 X X X X X
900.0 X X X X X
850.0 X X X X X
800.0 X X X X X
750.0 X X X X X
700.0 X X X X X
650.0 X X X X X
600.0 X X X X X
550.0 X X X X X
500.0 X X X X X
450.0 X X X X X
400.0 X X X X X
350.0 X X X X X
300.0 X X X X X
250.0 X X X X X
200.0 X X X X X
150.0 X X X X X
100.0 X X X X X
70.0 X X X X
50.0 X X X X
30.0 X X X X
20.0 X X X X
10.0 X X X X
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the other hand, my namelist.input is:

&domains
time_step = 60,
time_step_fract_num = 0,
time_step_fract_den = 1,
max_dom = 3,
e_we = 90, 94, 73,
e_sn = 62, 37, 31,
e_vert = 28, 28, 28,
p_top_requested = 6000,
num_metgrid_levels = 27,
num_metgrid_soil_levels = 4,
dx = 27000, 9000, 3000,
dy = 27000, 9000, 3000,
parent_id = 1, 1, 2,
grid_id = 1, 2, 3,
i_parent_start = 1, 41, 30,
j_parent_start = 1, 20, 24,
parent_grid_ratio = 1, 3, 3,
parent_time_step_ratio = 1, 3, 3,
feedback = 1,
smooth_option = 1,
/

I had downloaded a subset of ds083.2 but even if I increased the extent of the information I was retrieving, I still got that error. What solved the problem for me was downloading the WHOLE world dataset for the days I was interested in, every six hours. Each files is around 15 MB, but it's worth it if you don't want to struggle anymore with having this error.

You can download the files from here:http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds083.2/index.html#sfol-wl-/data/ds083.2 and take into account that THE VTABLE TO USE FOR THIS DATASET IS >>>Vtable.GFS<<<
