Model fail when Vegetation competition on

Hi,

I developed my own version of JULES (JULES-CNP) and currently running the model on the namelist (i do not use a suite). However, when I turn the vegetation competition on after one day of the run (triffid period is set to 1), the run crashes and gives the following error:

forrtl: severe (174): SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred

Note that, the model runs fine without the vegetation competition on. Also, I get the same error, running the trunk versions. Would you please let me know what could be the possible reason for this error?

Thanks,

Andre

Hi Andre:
How many time steps does your model run for, after turning triffid on?
Can you close your NETCDF output file just before the failure, and then check that output to see if any of the output variables are weird? You might need to add output variables.
Such a qsat seg fault is not uncommon, and is at least sometimes caused by ancillaries or driving data having unusual values.
