I am trying to run windblown dust calculations but finding that when I used the refined part of my nested grid over the area of interest my dust emissions bottomed out to 0. I have been looking into what would been causing the problem and noticed this in my Soil_Erode_Pot for my larger grid. The refined grid focuses on the GSL in upper Utah.
I might be wrong but this image doesnt look right to me. I did a hand calculation of the erodible potential near the GSL using the soil types given in my wrfout_do1 file and they should be around 5.99 but show as 0.
Ive been working on finding the error that is causing this for a while not but have had no luck. I am using the PXLSM model. My configurations for WRF are based on https://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/users/docs/PX-ACM.pdf. Any suggestions as how to fix this would be appreciated.
