I am confused about an issue as described below.
I would like to initialize my CMAQv5.3.2 run started in UTC+8 with a day-by-day simulation. For example, the CMAQv5.3.2 starts on Jan 1st 08:00 UTC. When the simulation time moves forward to Jan 2nd 00:00UTC, the CMAQ will try to find the emission for UTC+9 for next day rather than UTC+0 which is not available in the emission file. Then, the model will crash. This is quite strange that why the model will try to read UTC+9 for Jan 2nd at the timestep of Jan 2nd UTC00:00.
The time configuration in CCTM.csh is listed below.
Any comments are highly appreciated!
#> Set Start and End Days for looping
setenv NEW_START TRUE #> Set to FALSE for model restart
set START_DATE = “2018-01-01” #> beginning date (July 1, 2018)
set END_DATE = “2018-12-31” #> ending date (July 14, 2018)
#> Set Timestepping Parameters
set STTIME = 080000 #> beginning GMT time (HHMMSS)
set NSTEPS = 240000 #> time duration (HHMMSS) for this run
set TSTEP = 010000 #> output time step interval (HHMMSS)
