ichthyop[severe] [Simulation] Initialisation failed

In my first demo, sine everything is prefixed, the domain/release stain started at off coast of Cape Town (South Africa) and it was able to simulate.

Hence, I attempted to define my domain and location of release stain to Malaysia (Asia) in order to begin my study and nothing works. To troubleshoot, I tried to readjust the release stain back to Cape Town with the domain remains in Malaysia. Surprisingly, the simulation was completed as per the demo attempt (At Cape Town, where the map domain is ignored) with log below:

Attached as well the (.cfg) (.nc) files for your comment and assistance. Please advice. 

Thank you.

Hello,

There is an error message "Center of the stain [lat: 3.721818; lon: 103.840682] is not in water or out of the domain"

This point is relatively close to the coast, so it could be considered as inland depending on your mask. Have you tried with another point further offshore?

Cheers,

Christophe

Dear Chris,

Yes I've tried to place it offshore (as well as within the border I fixed), but the same error occured.

Cheers,
Ray.

I am not sure to understand the problem actually. You have your own ROMS files of Malaysia, right? Or you're trying to use the demo ROMS file of the Benguela to simulate particles dispersal off Malaysia?

Hi Chris,
I see what's going on right now. Yeah you';re right, I've been trying to use the demo ROMS of Benguela to simulate the particles off Malaysia. In that case, do you have any suggestion as to where I can download/refer to for Malaysia's ROM files?

Thank you.
 
Regards.
Ray.

Hi Ray,

I don't know where you could download ROMS files for Malaysia. Such files are rarely directly available to download, if there are any. I recommend you get in contact with a physical oceanography lab around you and ask. You may also try using the global current product OSCAR with Ichthyop, as explained in the tutorial.

All the best,

Christophe
