How to output microphysical process rates

Post by sekluzia » Tue Apr 27, 2021 6:26 am

Dear Colleges,

Is there any guidance or help to output variables of various microphysical process rates (deposition, riming, autoconversion etc.) from a used cloud microphysical scheme. I am interested in the Thompson aerosol aware scheme (option 28).

Kind regards,
Artur

Artur,
These variables are not state variables. Therefore, you have to modify the codes to make them available for output. Please take a look at this presentation, which demonstrates in detail how to add variables to Registry and output them in wrfout files:
