How to get total solar radiation from WRFOUT

Post by Liliputian_123 » Tue May 18, 2021 3:31 am

Dear WRF-experts,

I am using ARWpost to post process WRFOUT files.

I am wondering how I can get total solar radiation from the wrfout files. It seems that it is not a direct output of ARWpost.

I'll appreciate any help on this.

GSW and GLW are two variables included in wrfout. I suppose you can derive solar radiation based on them and other variables like skin temperature.

Hi Ming-Chen,

Thank you for this.
I also saw the WRF-solar. I will also try that.

Please mark this as resolved.
