I got a question regarding the parameters dswrf, dlwrf as well as swddni and swddif. I am interested in direct solar radiation and diffuse solar radiation which are, according to the req-fields, exspecially found in my post processing tool, swddif and swddni.

After post processing I found the parameters dswrf, dlwrf in my outputfiles.
As far as I noticed yet, these values are from the radiation scheme, but, do dswrf include both parameters, swddni and swddif?

I did not find swddni or swddif in any outfile from WRF. So, I am a bit confused.

Can anyone help?

and best regards
