I’m trying to run a two-way WRF v3.8 -CMAQ v5.2 model at 4 km. When I run the model, I believe I am getting an error because the GRIDDESC file that is created is missing a space, or maybe has too many float points, but the GRIDDESC in the output file is this:
tail /projects/b1045/wrf-cmaq/output/CONUS4K/output_CONUS4K_d02_4km_sf_rrtmg_12_8_1_v3852/GRIDDESC ' ' 'LAM_040N097W' 2 33.000 45.000 -97.000 -97.000 40.000 ' ' 'CONUS4K_d02' 'LAM_040N097W' -2292000.000 -1584000.000 4000.000 4000.0001155 726 1 ' '
So you can see that the 4000.001155 run into each other.
However, for the GRIDDESC in the input file which I created, I do not have this issue:
/projects/b1045/cmaq/cmaq_v5.2/PREP/mcip/scripts/data/mcip/CONUS4K_d02/GRIDDESC ' ' 'LAM_40N97W' 2 33.000 45.000 -97.000 -97.000 40.000 ' ' 'CONUS4K_d02' 'LAM_40N97W' -2292000.000 -1584000.000 4000.000 4000.000 1155 726 1 ' '
Here is the original log file where I decided the error was this GRIDDESC run-on issue

Is there a way to fix this error? I’m not sure why this is happening, if perhaps theres a greater error on hand.
