Error about meteorological data

Post by solkim » July 24th, 2019, 3:19 am

Dear hysplit users

I am running hysplit using gfs0p25 data which offered by ucar ncar ftp server(ftp://ftp.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/gfs/prod/).
I've used api2arl tool to convert grib2 data to arl data. Before i use 20190722 gfs data, hysplit running was succesfull. But after 20190722 gfs data, error get occured.
below is error message.

Code: Select all

Model started ...
 HYSPLIT4 - Initialization 
 Last Changed Rev: 927
 Last Changed Date: 2018-01-25 16:56:26 -0500 (Thu, 25 Jan 2018)
 
 *ERROR* metset: the use of forecast meteorological data
   is not supported with this version. User registration
   is required for computations with forecast data files.


i have tried to fix it by updating hysplit version. But 'Scan for update' button in Advanced menu doesn't work.

Here is the question.
1. Is there any format change in gfs0p25 data of ucar-ncar? i have tried to fix it by updating hysplit version. But Scan for update button in Advanced menu doesn't work.

Here is the question.
1. Is there any format change in gfs0p25 data of ucar-ncar? if is so, what i should to change to convert gfs data to arl data?
2. What should i do to run hysplit using gfs0p25 data?

It looks like you are using the unregistered version of HYSPLIT to access data that is valid for the current day. This is not allowed with the trial version. You will need to get the registered version of HYSPLIT to use current forecast data in the model.

Also, there is no need to convert the data to HYSPLIT format as it is already available operationally in HYSPLIT format through the NCEP NOMADS site at:
