Does RIP4 work with hybrid-vertical-coord. WRFv4 output?

Post by bjewett » Mon Apr 22, 2019 3:39 pm

I am writing to ask if anyone knows if the existing post-processing tools - including RIP, ARWpost, WRF Python utilities etc - should already work correctly with the hybrid vertical coordinate data in WRFv4?

My guess is: yes, there is already sufficient information in the WRF history files for these tools to correctly interpolate in the vertical for height / pressure / isentropic-level plan-view and cross section plots.

Is this true?

Thanks.

Hi Brian,
Yes, they should work with the hybrid vertical coordinate system. Let us know if you determine otherwise. Thanks!
