GFS 0p25 File Error

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this board so have patience with me in case something feels a bit off with my post.

Anyway, I am using the GFS archive to conduct HYSPLIT modelling. I have been using the archive to model backwards atmospheric trajectories in hourly timesteps. I have been receiving errors using the 2019-06-03 GFS 0p25 archive file (3rd of June 2019). My error code has been “ERROR metset: meteorological data time interval varies. Check input meteo file.” With it also stating “Changed from 180 min to 4500 min, At day/hr 3 6”. Would anyone be able to advice if there is anything wrong with this file? I have tried checking the logs of missing data but without any success.

Cheers,
Stones

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Yes, there is a problem with that file. I deleted it from the archive and noted that in the file readme_gfs0p25_missings.txt (ftp://ftp.arl.noaa.gov/archives/gfs0p25.v1). Unfortunately we cannot fix the file, so as an alternative, use /archives/gdas0p5/20190603_gdas0p5 instead.
