I had a go at reproducing this one by modifying the surface sample which also reads in eo from the met file. Whether I used 4 or 4.0 didn't seem to matter. It always ran correctly.

"NAN problem with Eo in met fileFrom Kirsten:
Issue with NAN seems to be to do with type conversions between integers and floats in met file.

Hi Neil and Don,


NAN problem. Managed to resolve that, but no closer to an explanation why it happened. The difference between working and crashing run was use of 4 or 4.0 (i.e. specifying the 0 decimal point) for the eo provided in the met file. If I used 4.0 instead of 4 (and 1.0 instead of 1, 2.0 instead of 2, etc), then the run went without problems.

PS Neil, do you know how one can get a value of –NAN for urea in soiln2. If I run run 31 (successful run from attached powerpoint presentation) with a different met file in which I use the SILO eo, I get this error in the run for south lysimeter. In fact this happens before the two met files differ in 2004, so not sure why this is happening. The next day it causes the same warning error in apswim and then a crash because it failed to solve the Freundlich equation.
