If my input data have no surface information, how can I fill the surface level data with the lowest model level data?

If your input data does not have any surface information (e.g., 2m T, 10m U, V, etc.), you can simply edit WPS/metgrid/METGRID.TBL by adding a line as follows for TT, QV, UU, and VV:

fill_lev = 200100:TT(X)

where X will be the number of the lowest model level in your input data. For example, you can set:

fill_lev = 200100:TT(100000)

This says that 1000mb temperature is filled-in as surface temperature. In the REAL program, you should then set use_surface = .false.
