Can anybody suggest how to use the Japanese reanalysis data, JRA-55, to drive WRF? Is there a Vtable that can be shared? Any other details that I will need to be aware of to be successful?

We don't have the Vtable to ungrib JRA-55. The WRF user's guide provides instruction how to create Vtable. I know it is tedious and could be time-expensive. Right now we are pretty busy with some other stuff. I am not sure whether we can find time in the near future to create a Vtable for this data. It may also depend on how many people prefer to use this dataset. Is there any special reason you choose JRA-55?
