YT met segmentation fault error when using similar tech as in the UV Nudging experiment to conduct TP heatforcing experiments.
The segfault comes from the user-added call in
call infld('tp', fh_tpmask, 'lon', 'lat', 1, pcols, begchunk, endchunk, & tpmask, found, grid_map='PHYS')
According to wikipedia:
In computing, a segmentation fault (often shortened to segfault) or access violation is a fault, or failure condition, raised by hardware with memory protection, notifying an operating system (OS) the software has attempted to access a restricted area of memory (a memory access violation).
We believe the error comes from the
infld reading process. Somehow the program violates the memory access limit, such as using double to read byte, or reading after End-of-File.
However, the original code is copied from a previous F compset run, which was smoothly conducted. So we re-check the ad-hoc part:
!*** MOD START: infld TP mask and heating file fh_tpmask=>tpmask_file_get_id() call infld('tp', fh_tpmask, 'lon', 'lat', 1, pcols, begchunk, endchunk, & tpmask, found, grid_map='PHYS')
The thing is that we read the file info (get the file handle) in a function from another module (
cam_initfiles.F90), and use the pointer to get the function handle in
phypkg.F90. In ` cam_initfiles.F90` we define:
function tpmask_file_get_id() type(file_desc_t), pointer :: tpmask_file_get_id tpmask_file_get_id => fh_tpmask end function tpmask_file_get_id
