Hi I am trying to convert WRF out files to some thing that the CALPUFF can read.

The two options I have found are CALWRF and MMIF

While using MMIF3.4.2, I get the error that, it can not read the netcdf file.

I have attached my mmif.inp and wrfout sample files here

Unfortunately, our group at NCAR does not have any experience with CALPUFF, CALWRF, or MMIF. I did unpack your wrfout* files, however, and I was able to open them with the ncview program, so the files are readable netcdf files. It's possible someone else on this forum will have some solutions for you.
