Configuring a CORDEXMENA experiment
Hi,
I am unsuccessfully attempting preparing a model setup suitable for performing a
CORDEX

MENA
experiment.
The run terminates at int2lm due to “Not all necessary fields could be read or interpolated”. Please see the files attached.
Any hint will be appreciated.

In the namelist you wrote
itype_albedo = 2,
However, from the
OUTPUT
file (see excerpt below) it can be seen that the parameters
ALB
_DRY and
ALB
_SAT are missing in your external data set.
You may either set
itype_albedo = 1,
or provide an external data set with
ALB
_DRY and
ALB
_SAT included.
The following external parameters have been read:COARSE LM INT2LM Height of the Orography T T F Geopotential of the surface T T F Orography transition at LB T with 10 grid points Fraction of land T T F Soiltyp F T F Surface roughness F T F Root depth F T F Plant Cover (Vegetation) F T F Plant Cover (Rest) F T F Leaf area index (Vegetation) F T F Leaf area index (Rest) F T F Evergreen Forest — T — Deciduous Forest — T — Standard deviation of SSO — T — Anisotropy of the orography — T — Angle between axis — T — Mean slope of SSO — T — Sulfat drops (12 month) — T — Mineral dust (12 month) — T — Organic (12 month) — T — Black carbon (12 month) — T — Sea salt (12 month) — T — Dry soil surface albedo — F — Sat. soil surface albedo — F — clim. deep soil temperature — T —

Thank you. Which of the three available in ExtPAR options for Surface Albedo (Modis sry & sat; Modis 12vis; Modis12) would you recommend me to use to have the external data for ALB _DRY and ALB _SAT included?
