Strangeness in ems_post and grads

Post by Giancarlo Modugno » Tue Dec 11, 2012 10:35 am

Hello!

There is a strangeness in the ems_post output, particularly in the final grib that combines all the time grib.

The simulation starts on the 4 november of 2011 at 00UTC and finishes at 9 november at 06 UTC (totally 133 h). As you see, ems_post is right and finishes with the 133rd file converting.

              133 of 133 : Writing fields from 2011-11-09_12:00:00 to GRIB 1 - 1111040000_arw_d01.grb1f320000    
                         Converting GRIB 1 to GRIB 2 - 1111040000_arw_d01.grb2f320000    


         Processing WRF netCDF output to GRIB format completed at Tue Dec 11 10:19:23 2012 UTC


   III.  Creating GrADS control and index files from domain 01 WRF GRIB data


           *  Combining individual grib files into a single monolithic file - 201111040000_arw_wrfout_d01.grb

           *  Creating GrADS control file - 201111040000_arw_wrfout_d01.ctl   - You Go GrADS!
           *  Creating GrADS  index  file - 201111040000_arw_wrfout_d01.idx   - More GrADS Love for You!
BUT, surprise, the ctl file shows only from the 5th of November at 09Z to the end of the simulation (totally 100 hours).

Now?

I think there is a bug when number of output times is over 99. I'm not sure but I remember that a time ago, I saw something like overwriting output gribs with same file name... not sure but let's check out; can you please add some more lines from this code block which starts with

Code: Select all

133 of 133 : Writing fields from 2011-11-09_12:00:00 to GRIB 1 - 1111040000_arw_d01.grb1f320000  
I would like to see everything from 99 of 133 to the end. You should have all output in wrfems/logs/ems_autoruns.log

I have not found the file but here you are several log lines from the terminal. I notice that it restarts by grb1f010000 after converting the 100th file ( grb1f00000)

Right, this is a problem.

I'm not sure if it is a bug or not. However try this first. Go to wrfems/runs/<domainname>/conf/ems_post/post_grib.conf

On the bottom, see this:

Code: Select all

#         For the forecast time string
#
#         FH    - 4-digit forecast hour (0 to forecast length - 0006, 0024, or 0144)
#         FX    - 2-digit forecast hour (0 to forecast length - 06 or 24)
#         FM    - 2-digit forecast minute (0 to 60)
#         FS    - 2-digit forecast second (0 to 60)
And, you probably have below:

Code: Select all

GRIBNAME = YYMMDDHHMN_CORE_dWD.grb#fFXFMFS
What will happen, if you change it to:

Code: Select all

GRIBNAME = YYMMDDHHMN_CORE_dWD.grb#fFHFMFS
Try it out, if it doesn't work OK after that change then it is really bug there. If it works, great ;)
