Hello. :D :D
The Coriolis term is one of the cruical factor influencing the PBL wind flow motion, and the Coriolis force is calculated from the latitude and Earth's rotational speed. Could I extract the Coriolis parameter from the WRF output files directly ?
It looks that the output variable list doesn't include the related illustration.

Hi Zihan,
Unfortunately there is not an option for that already in the model code. You may have to use some sort of post-processing program to do this.
