Hello, I am working on using the windblown dust module in CMAQv5.3 to estimate contribution of windblown dust to PM10. According to CMAQv5.3 Users’ Guide:
“BELD4: Use BELD4 landuse data for windblown dust calculations. The user needs to
specify the E2C_LU file described in Chapter 4. This file typically is available for North
American domains only…”. I use BELD4 and update CCTM run script as below
setenv CTM_WB_DUST Y
setenv CTM_WBDUST_BELD BELD4
setenv E2C_LU $LUpath/beld4.56X47domain.nc
However, CMAQ run was aborted with the following error message:
*** ERROR ABORT in subroutine lus_setup on PE 000
Could not read NLCD_32 from E2C_LU
PM3EXIT: DTBUF 0:00:00 April 29, 2014
I checked BELD4 input data (varlist_tot.ncf) and it includes 20 categories but no NLCD_32 which seems required by windblown dust module for using BELD4 data.
It is really appreciated if someone could have any ideas and experience to fix this problem.
