I am using the plume in-line emission setting to process Canadian industrial emissions with the plume rise threshold of 38m. The plume in-line outputs for the 9 and 3km domains were reasonable. For the 1km domain, the in-line method did not work and gave the following error. FYI I was able to run the rest of the Canadian inventories for the same 1km domain without any error.
I then turned off the ELEVPOINT and changed the SMK_METHOD to 0 to re-run the point source inventory. With this setting, a reasonable output was generated.
I am confused with why the plume in-line setting doesn’t work for the 1km domain. Can you please help me understand what exactly the smoke plume in-line emissions are and also how to decide on a reasonable plume rise height for the threshold value?
I have attached the log file related to the error shown above, my griddsec file and as well as the inventory files I am having issues running the plume in-line.
