WRF & MPAS-A Support Forum

Welcome to the WRF/WRFDA/WRF-Chem/MPAS Users' Support Forum, please read the guidelines & suggestions below.

Registration

  • You must create an account to post (first-time posts need manager approval - may take 2-3 business days).

Posting Threads

  • Before posting, use the search utility to verify whether a solution to your inquiry already exists
  • Post inquiries to the relevant forum and open a new thread for each new question. Do not post inquiries more than once, or in multiple locations.
  • State the problem or error in the subject line and attach relative files (e.g., namelists, error logs).
  • Click "More options" and then check the boxes for "Watch this thread" and "receive email notifications."
  • If the problem is related to compiling, please first see the WRF/WPS Compiling web page and ensure you have completed all steps and passed all tests.

Including Files

  • Avoid attaching screen shots of error messages, as the content is not searchable.
  • If attaching packaged files, use zipped or .tar format (not .rar format).
  • If files are too large to upload, package files as a single .tar file, and upload to our Nextcloud storage, and then let us know the file name or link to the file. You may also download files that have been placed in Nextcloud.

Responses

  • The NCAR team tries to reply to inquiries in a timely manner, but it can sometimes take a few days due to other obligations.
  • The NCAR team does not work nights, weekends, or holidays.
  • We welcome experienced users to respond to inquiries. This can help expedite the response process.

Note

  • This is the official NCAR-supported forum for the WRF & MPAS models. While other similar forums may exist and be perfectly functional, we are not affiliated with any forum outside of this one.
  • In response to the many recent inquiries about the future of the WRF modeling system and the newly developed MPAS model, the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Laboratory of NCAR has prepared a statement to clarify our continued support for WRF and MPAS.
