Correct format emiss input files for WRFv4

Post by RocioB » Wed Jul 22, 2020 12:21 pm

Dear colleagues,

Currently, we run WRF-Chem v3.9.1 and we get our prepared emissions files (wrfchemi_dXX, wrffirechemi_dXX) from different programs (python, fortran..), so that means that we do not use fire_emiss nor anthro_emiss WRF-Chem tools. We would like to know what are the special requirements or file format that we need to have to be able to run WRF-Chem v4.1.5 WITHOUT having to set to TRUE * force_use_old_data. (We have found that when using old input data, one should also set hybrid_opt =0 and use_theta_m = 0 in &dynamics, since the defaults for V4 are hybrid_opt =2 and use_theta_m = 1, and this way our model runs, but we don´t want to switch those options to 0).

Thank you very much!

Best wishes,
