Chris,

I use the Linux editor vim, so don't think I have introduced any unwanted <CR><LF> but this is good to know for future reference. Ran pwd for the ROMS/External directory and put in full path returned:

/afs/lions.odu.edu/home/j/jande023/ROMS/trunk/ROMS/External/varinfo.dat

also tried

~/ROMS/trunk/ROMS/External/varinfo.dat

Couldn't locate in either case, so I reverted back to the way I had successfully set up the Upwelling test case with:

VARNAME = varinfo.dat and varinfo.dat in my EstuarySediment project directory.

Now get a different error: At line 434 of file inp_par.f90 Fortran runtime error: No such file or directory. Not sure where inp_par.f90 is to investigate further. Next step is to svn relevant files; but, I fear that's not the issue. My output file, sedimentTest.out, is copied below, showing where the run terminates.

Model Input Parameters: ROMS/TOMS version 3.6
