Input Control file error

Post by Omar Noaman »

Dear Sir
when I tried to calculate the dust storm model for specific archive meteorological data (gdas1.oct19.w3), I received this message error (input control file requires 3 locations, however, I insert only one location which is Baghdad coordinates ), how can I fix this issue?

Please attach your SETUP.CFG, CONTROL, and MESSAGE file to this thread. They would be helpful to diagnose the issue.

If you are using the HYSPLIT Graphical User Interface, the HYSPLIT files should be found in the working directory.

You might want to rename CONTROL to CONTROL.txt, SETUP.CFG to SETUP.txt, etc. and try uploading them again.

Thanks for posting the MESSAGE file content. We will need CONTROL and SETUP.CFG files as well.

Your CONTROL file specifies one release location on lines 2-3. For the dustbdy program to work, the CONTROL file must have three locations: see https://www.ready.noaa.gov/hysplitusers ... m#run_dust.
