I want to to incorporate aerosol AOD data measured using sky radiometer to compare and study the impact of various aerosol models with actual measured data on direct and diffused radiations.

Please guide me to with namelist wps and namelist input file changes to simulate measured aerosols AOD data.


Hi Jayesh,

There are many combinations of configurations that could be used to do this. I would suggest reading through the WRF and WRF-Chem user guides and looking at some of the tutorial presentations ( to understand the possibilities.
