Error during grib to ARL formal-ERA Interim-reanalysis

Post by shyamrockranjan » April 21st, 2017, 7:57 am

Hi there,

I am new to hysplit and having trouble during conversion of ECMWF ERA-reanalysis data into ARL format.

I have used three different files for 3d, 2d and invariant but no success. I have used the monthly data jan2015 of around (5GB size)

When I try to convert in ARL form I got the following message

"could not read "C:/hysplit4/{2015jan-ERA interim.grib}": no such file or directory
could not read "C:/hysplit4/{2015jan-ERA interim.grib}": no such file or directory
while executing
"file size $gdir/$gbase"
(procedure "xtrct_data" line 16)
invoked from within
"xtrct_data "
invoked from within
".eraarch.bot.save invoke"
("uplevel" body line 1)
invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke]"
(procedure "tk::ButtonUp" line 24)
invoked from within
"tk::ButtonUp .eraarch.bot.save"
(command bound to event)"

Any idea what is wrong here?

Thanks in advance!
Shyam

The conversion program is not finding your files.
Make sure you are giving the conversion program the correct location and name for
your files. For instance, I notice there are curly brackets around the filename in
your error message which probably should not be there.

Cheers.
