How to get total solar radiation from WRFOUT

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.
