Temperature Diagnostic from WRF

Post by linlu9876 » Mon Feb 15, 2021 12:27 pm

Hi all,

I am looking to analyse the vertical temperature variation with altitude and pressure levels.
Can you please help how can I do that from the WRF outputs?

Please advice.

Best, Lin

Hi,
You can use Integrated Data Viewer to create soundings. You will be able to do much more.

Hi AlainF,


Many thanks for your reply. Could you give a bit more detail about how can I start with doing what you suggested?

Also, I am interested in looking at temperatures at different attitudes above my domain and I am not sure which output variable in wrfout files provides that.

Additionally, can you suggest how can I retrieve heights and temp at different heights in the atmosphere from WRF?

Please can anyone from the team help?


Thanks, Lin

Well, I suggest that you first use the Integrated data viewer. They have a website here : https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/
Then, you will discover how you can create a sounding diagram from a grib or grib2 file that has been processed from wrfout-->grib/grib2 by unipost.exe.
Of course, you first need to run unipost.exe to generate the grib files, but maybe you have already done it.
