Unable to generate Control Files for Grolocation in GUI

Post by l_gillespie »

After selecting the measurements file in step 1, when I press EXECUTE for Step 2: Create all the CONTROL files, nothing happens. The files do not appear in my working directory.

I am using the pre-compiled Linux version, 5.1.

can you try executing the bash script and see if that works?

You'll have to forgive me, but I don't know which script you're referring to. It's not in the help documentation.

In the tutorial, if you click on the Penguin Icon at the top menu bar it will bring you to a bash script.
Also you can find the scripts in the Tutorial_2021/bash folder.
The one for section 6.4 is called traj_geol.sh

This is the output I get.

Code: Select all

I suspect renaming my HYSPLIT directory might help.

Yes - just edit the lines defining MDL, MET and OUT to point to the right directories.

MDL is where your hysplit installation is.
MET is where the meteorological data is
OUT is working directory

Or place the HYSPLIT directory here: ${HOME}/hysplit
and the tutorial directory here: ${HOME}/Tutorial
so you won't have to edit those lines in every bash script in the tutorial.
