I would like to report an issue that I met when doing the MCIP process. The error message is show below:
*** SUBROUTINE: RDWRFEM
*** ERROR RETRIEVING VARIABLE FROM WRF FILE
*** VARIABLE = FRC_URB2D
*** RCODE = NetCDF: Variable not found
I checked the variable “FRC_URB2D” and only find it in the geo_em.d0x.nc files rather than in the wrfout file. Thus, it looks like mcip is trying to extract this variable from wrfout files whereas this variable is not in it. Am I wrong or the mcip should be updated?
One more question is that whether this warning will greatly affect air quality simulation in CMAQ?
Please note that I am using WRFv3.9.1 with WPSv4.1 and CMAQv5.3.2 with up-to-date MCIP version.
Any comments are highly appreciated!
