KPP regional suite bicgstab error

Hi Annette,

I’m having troubles with my 2km suite over on Archer (u-bz230), which is failing on the first atmosphere timestep, (the ocean seems to get to the second timestep okay). The suite uses new remap weights which Claudio kindly generated for me. The error I’m getting is NaNs? in the fast physics, so likely a problem with the input data. I can’t see any problems with the inputs, so my guess is that there’s an issue with the inputs coming over from oasis. Have you come across anything similar previously? Do you know if there's a way I can check the data being passed by oasis?

I've traced this error to the ancillary files, which I've generated using the nesting suite. I'll try using CCI ancils rather than IGBP.

comment:2 Changed 6 days ago by EmmaHoward

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Using new ancils has resolved this problem.

Great thanks for letting us know.
