    Building a container to compile WRF

    We have been working on installing the required software for WRF on our system for the past few months without success. We would like to run WRF with Intel compilers, as we have seen that Intel compilers reduce run times. We have been using the WRF User Guide and several other online resources...

    Can WRF output data be used for Input data on smaller domain

    I have a 4km 120hr WRF run that is created in 5hrs. But when I nest in a 1km grid it increases the time dramatically to finish the run. So my question is can I use the output from the 4km 120hr run as initial data for a new wrf run at 1km? I don't see a vtable in ungrib for WRF on ARGWRF. So...

    Finding SST data for WRF

    Hi there, I am completely new to using SST data and I'm not sure where to start. I think I understand what I'm supposed to do once I actually have the data, but I'm not sure where to get it, especially in a form where I can use ungrib on it. I'm currently modelling temperatures in Toronto, but...

    Real.exe produces only one wrfinput_d01 although I'm using 4 domains!

    I hope you're all doing great. This is my first time using WRF, I have done most of the WPS work, the geogrid, ungrib and metgrid and I linked my met output files to my wrf/run path. My case study has 4 nested domains and I have attached the namelist.wps below. When I run the real.exe and it...

    ungrib.exe fails to create

    In compiling the WPS, the ungrib.exe is not created. As per 'compile.log', it seems the issue I am having is the same as this one (No ungrib.exe), but there was never a resolution for this issue. I tried the solution there, but no luck with creating the ungrib.exe. As per where the post ended, I...

    Good morning everyone, My friend and I are trying to create a bash script that automates the installation of HWRF with very little user input. The script so far can install WRF-NMM and only the ungrib.exe in WPS. The script utilizes the following libraries: sudo apt -y install gcc gfortran...

    Hello, I am using WRF on NERSC's Cori supercomputer, which recently underwent a full operating system upgrade. Since that time, I've updated library paths and recompiled WRF and WPS.

    geogrid.exe and metgrid.exe not generated on WPS3.9

    While trying to execute metgrid.exe on WPS 4.3.1 I got the error Error in ext_pkg_write_field, so as suggested in another posts, I installed WPS 3.9 so I could avoid that error, but while I was compilng WPS, no geogrid nor metgrid executables where created. I attach the compile log.
