WRFDA v3.8.1 error with tutorial case

Postby danielG » Fri Sep 09, 2016 6:47 am

Hello,

I've compiled with gcc/gfortran and installed WRFDA on a Red-Hat 6.5 release (simple option) .
Looks to be correctly installed. I've download the tutorial case , follow the manual but I've got the
following errors:

rainbow@tarox-dg:/usr/local/projects/WRFDA/workdir>./da_wrfvar.exe
Namelist logging not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in logging.
Namelist logging not found in namelist.input. Using registry defaults for variables in logging.

*** VARIATIONAL ANALYSIS ***
WRFDA V3.8.1

----------------- ERROR -------------------
namelist : NUM_LAND_CAT = 21
input files : NUM_LAND_CAT = 20 (from geogrid selections).
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------

I've had a look at namelist.input , but it does not have the entry num_land_cat!!

Many thanks,
Daniel

Did you get this figured out? I'm having the same problem. This is my first experience with WRF so I don't even know where to start looking.

So, just like I can't see something in the refrigerator until I ask my wife where it is, as soon as I posted my question I found the answer and I don't know how I missed it before. For any other beginners looking in the future, the version 3.8 updates state that the default value of "num_land_cat" has been changed from 24 to 21. The "num_land_cat" parameter (not "NUM_LAND_CAT") is in the &physics section of namelist.input and set to 21, plain as day. Changing that to 24 fixes the problem.
