[gembud] NAM


To add to the discussions on the WRF / Gembud / Conduit lists about recent NAM issues, the 12z NAM218 run coming over NOAAPort had some serious issues that I haven't figured out quite yet. Note here:

http://modelweather.com/files/cases/2017/03/2017.03.23.12knam.png

that is a screenshot of my 12knam directory... notice that the 06z run came through just fine, and all of my products ran... however, with the 12z run, notice that everything "seems" to have been encoded within one forecast hour (F021)... I'm not quite sure how the data would happen to fit within one forecast hour... it seems strange

I'll run a notifyme and hopefully catch any changes on the next run unless someone has already done that and has a pqact handy?

cheers,

Hello,

I've done an early look:

1) I took the GRIB2 awip3d36 file from the 12z 3/22 run and ran an inventory, I saw no bad values 2) When I converted the GRIB2 awip3d36 to GRIB1 using a circa 2013 version of cnvgrib, I got a bad 700 mb height number

rec 316:9492050:date 2017032218 <tel:(201)%20703-2218> HGT kpds5=7 kpds6=100 kpds7=700 levels=(2,188) grid=255 700 mb 36hr fcst:

min/max data -1.25181e+07 3176.45 num bits 24 BDS_Ref -1.25181e+10 DecScale 3 BinScale 10

3) When I used a current cnvgrib compiled with our latest version of g2 lib, the bad height value went away

rec 316:9492050:date 2017032218 <tel:(201)%20703-2218> HGT kpds5=7 kpds6=100 kpds7=700 levels=(2,188) grid=255 700 mb 36hr fcst:

I assume the code that failed (WRF Real) is a Fortran code as I recall from my WRF days, and that it reads GRIB2. If so, my questions for the CONDUIT people are):1) does it use NCEP libraries (specifically the GRIB2 (g2) library, 2) If so, how old is this library? 3) If you use g2lib and if I provided a modified routine, could it be tested?

We run the NEMS NPS code which is very similar to the WRF Real code, and in NAMv4, I had to ensure that I compiled it with our latest version of g2 lib which had a modified routine that fixed problems I encountered when unpacking complex-packed GRIB2 files. The random nature of this error makes me think this is the problem. Smaller grids are more suspectible to the error, whicgh is probably why you don;t see it in the larger awip32 North American domain files.

Some background: in the new NAM we output GRIB2 direct from the post-processing, in the old NAM all GRB2 files were converted from GRIB1 with jpeg2000 compression. We switched the new NAM GRIB2 to use complex packing because it is faster and it allowed us not to exceed the NAM product delivery window.

Take care
Eric

Sorry -- should have read the entire thread. Mike confirmed in another email that he pulled down the awip3d 40km file and it also seemed to have the corruption.

I'll pull in some other folks now.

Eric, Wojciech -- some of our users are noting issues with the 40km NAM files since the upgrade. Can you please take a look?

Thanks.

Hi Folks.
Let's try something. I want to see if it's the 40km grids themselves, or something about the way we're breaking them up to insert into the LDM for CONDUIT.

Dataflow -- can you tell us the equivalent files on ftpprd to the 40km ones we send to CONDUIT?

Then if one of you on this thread can pull down that full file from our ftp server and see if you get the same corruption we'll know which avenue to go down in our troubleshooting. I want to make sure it's not our breaking up of the file before I bring in the model developer.

More to come in the morning.

Mike, I am seeing the exact same error as you with the 40 km NAM grids since the upgrade.

I am getting an error with real.exe in seemingly random times. I don't
actually think it's a CONDUIT problem as I downloaded the awip3d

troubles, could not find trapping x locations

I think this is a corruption of only the 40km grids as I manually
downloaded the 32km awip32 grids from the same time and it did work.
Unfortunately, the 32km is not available on CONDUIT and I'd MUCH prefer using CONDUIT NAM grids rather than downloading from NCEP. Anyone have
any ideas?
thanks.
Mike
