CMAQ-CCTM error

When I was running CCTM, CCTM prompted the following error: Is it my setup problem or the emission source problem?

#2

The error message says that the timestep is not available in your stack_groups file.
Can you share a copy of your run script and your CTM_LOG file?


#3

It’s a time-independent file, so the error message saying the timestep is missing is probably a red herring.

The format of the stack_groups file appears incorrect. There is supposed to be one column, and the number of rows corresponds to the number of point sources in the sector. I suggest you compare to the sample point source files that are distributed with CMAQ, and/or consult the SMOKE documentation for creation of those files.


#4

Chris is right. Stack group file is not time dependent and also they are warning message. Error is coming while initializing plume rise. I think @guodp need to check what was the actual error message in a log file.
