CMAQ 5.3.2 ISAM Run

Hi, I recently installed CMAQ 5.3.2 and trying to run test cases. The base case runs successfully but when I try to run ISAM case, it stops with an error, looking at the log files, the end lines are:

 *** ERROR ABORT in subroutine SA_IOLIST on PE 002       
 Error Opening SA_IO_LIST file

PM3EXIT: date&time specified as 0
Date&time specified as 0

Just wondering if anyone can give some insight on resolving this error. Thanks in advance

Please take a look at the following tutorial.

I have followed line by line these instructions while running the ISAM. Could you please point out which step I might be doing wrong?

Did you change anything in the CMAQ-ISAM tag definition control file or are you using the default version? Please attach your version of the isam_control.txt.

I have not changed anything in the control file. When I try to attach it says new users cannot upload attachments. I am copying the contents of the isam_control.txt below:

!!! CMAQ-ISAM tag definition control file

!!! The “TAG CLASSES” line defines the tag classes to track for the simulation. Species in NITRATE and VOC classes depend on the

!!! Choose any/all from the list of nine: SULFATE, NITRATE, AMMONIUM, EC, OC, VOC, PM25_IONS, OZONE, CHLORINE
!!! SULFATE - ASO4J, ASO4I, SO2, SULF, SULRXN
!!! NITRATE - ANO3J, ANO3I, HNO3, NO, NO2, NO3, HONO, N2O5, PNA, PAN, PANX, NTR1, NTR2, INTR, CLNO2, CLNO3
!!! AMMONIUM - ANH4J, ANH4I, NH3
!!! EC - AECJ, AECI
!!! OC - APOCI, APOCJ, APNCOMI, APNCOMJ
!!! VOC - Various species depending on mechanism. Now includes CO. (see CCTM/src/isam/SA_DEFN.F for complete list)

!!! OZONE - O3, all NITRATE species, and all VOC species
!!! CHLORINE - ACLI, ACLJ, HCL

ENDLIST eof

In the log script where you found that " ERROR ABORT " message, search for other instances of the character string “SA_IO_LIST”. One of these instances should be a path/filename of the file that it is trying to open. This is defined in the runscript. Make sure that it is defined correctly in the runscript and that the file it is looking for exists.

Thanks @sergey , I resolved that issue. But currently stuck with the program abruptly ends after two iterations, here is the message on the screen. The log files do not say any error, but gives a warning that ISAM species not found in CHEMISTRY_SPC.I would have attached the log file but as a new user I cannot (not sure how long I will stay as new user).

I’ve upgraded you to a “regular user”, let me know if you can upload files now.

Yes I am able to upload the files. Thanks @lizadams
