GUI Won't Convert WRF Output

Post by sebenish » August 7th, 2017, 11:46 am

Hello,

I've been trying to use the GUI to convert my WRF output. When I select "Convert to ARL" and pick my file and output path, I get a popup window that says the file has been converted (no errors are given), but there is still the spinning mouse/clock icon no matter how long it runs. However, when I go to WRFDATA.ARL and try to run checkfile the file is empty. I believe I've compiled/data2arl/arw2arl correctly; is there something I'm missing? Thanks much!

Sarah

Are you working on a linux system?
Try running the arw2arl converter by the line of command.

Yes, I'm working on a linux system.

I've tried:
../exec/arw2arl -iwrfout_d02_2016-05-28_00:00:00
on the command line.

But I get: error while loading shared libraries: libnetcdff.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does this mean something is wrong with my compilation?
Thanks!!

Yes, that means that your netcdf libraries are not properly compiled. Just make sure you are using the same compiler for the netcdf libraries and arw2arl.
