error in reconfiguration

Reported by: anmcr Owned by: grenville

UM Version: 7.1



I have a problem with the reconfiguration of a 4km resolution run. This is job xffxc.

Originally the job was run with a riwmith=8 and orography blending width=15. However, after 20 or so hours the run failed with the 'RHS zero' failed to converge error.

Therefore I increased to rimwidth=12 and orography blending with=27. This job fails with the error given below. I think the vaiable name '0.125' which it queries is number 26 from the 'blending zone table' in the orography ancillary panel. But I've no idea why this should fail.

Thanks for any help,

You need to increase the value of orog_blend_max in utility/qxreconf/rcf_readnl_horizont_mod.F90 to 40 say. It currently stands a 25 so can't accomodate your larger blending zone.
