Issue with using "mksurfdata.pl" to generate the surface datasets of supported resolution

Dear Sir:

I am trying to create the surface dataset for the compset I2000Clm50BgcCropGs at hcru resolution using "mksurdata.pl". I am following
the instructions in the README file in mksurfdata_map directory. Since hcru is one of the supported model resolutions, the commands seem
relative simple as follows:

1. make the mksurfdata_map executable (successful)

2. 
The only modification I made is $CSMDATA directory name.

./mksurfdata.pl -res hcru_hcru -y 2000

I keep getting the message "invalid resolution" as follows:

[xgao@svante-login mksurfdata_map]$ ./mksurfdata.pl -res hcru_hcru -y 2000
** Invalid resolution: hcru_hcru
SYNOPSIS
For supported resolutions:
mksurfdata.pl -res <res> [OPTIONS]
-res [or -r] "resolution" is the supported resolution(s) to use for files (by default hcru_hcru ).

......

I don't know python well, so it is difficult to diagnose the problems. Not sure if I made any silly mistake?

Thanks,

Xiang

I think that res was renamed at some point. Try:

./mksurfdata.pl -res 360x720cru -y 2000

Thanks. Now I have another issue. The command requires the following mapping file:

cesm/inputdata/lnd/clm2/mappingdata/maps/360x720/map_3x3min_MODIS-wCsp_to_360x720cru_nomask_aave_da_c160425.nc

I am trying to download it with either ftp or wget, but keep getting permission denied:

Additional issue with creating surface data on 0.5 degree:

It requires the file "map_5x5min_ORNL-Soil_to_360x720cru_nomask_aave_da_c170706.nc" as shown below:

[xgao@svante-login mksurfdata_map]$ ./mksurfdata.pl -res 360x720cru -y 2000
ERROR: mapping file for this resolution does NOT exist (/net/fs05/d1/xgao/cesm2.1.3/inputdata/lnd/clm2/mappingdata/maps/360x720/map_5x5min_ORNL-Soil_to_360x720cru_nomask_aave_da_c170706.nc).

However, when I try to download this file, there is no such file under the designated directory:

[xgao@svante-login 360x720]$ wget ftp://ftp.cgd.ucar.edu/cesm/inputdata/lnd/clm2/mappingdata/maps/360x720/map_5x5min_ORNL-Soil_to_360x720cru_nomask_aave_da_c170706.nc

No such file ‘map_5x5min_ORNL-Soil_to_360x720cru_nomask_aave_da_c170706.nc’.


I checked the directory, there are only three files at 5x5min:

map_5x5min_IGBP-GSDP_to_360x720_nomask_aave_da_c120830.nc
map_5x5min_ISRIC-WISE_to_360x720_nomask_aave_da_c120830.nc
map_5x5min_nomask_to_360x720_nomask_aave_da_c120830.nc

Any information is appreciated.

I've put that file on our anonymous ftp site for now:
ftp ftp.cgd.ucar.edu
cd pub/oleson/mappingdata

@erik , can you add that file to the repository?
