Hi all,

I hope to investigate the land use's influence on climate using Noah scheme and the single canopy urban model. May I just modify the LU_INDEX values in the wrfinput_d01 file, and then run wrf.exe?

Because I know in producing the wrfinput_d01 file, the Noah scheme is also initialized. I am not sure if there would be some other variables need to be changed.

Any suggestions about this problem? Many thanks in advance.
