I would like to use WRF4.1 and CLM Land surface model. I was wondering if there is a way to prescribe land surface temperatures over a certain land region with prepared data? I am quite unclear about the relevant knowledge. What steps I might go through or what codes I might modify?

Thanks for your help!
Hi Siyu,
Please take a look at the codes related to option "sst_update = 1", which uses prescribed sst to update sst during the integration. I suppose this is quite similar to what you intend to do.
