RE: How to check Varsso used in the model

I am trying to check if varsso is not zero in the wrfinput file.

What commands can assist me to find the above??

Appreciate your assistance and advice.


I figured it out:

ncdump -h wrfinput_d03 >& wrfinput_d03.txt

ncdump -v VAR_SSO wrfinput_d03

I tried using the above before on the Linux HPC cluster in which WRF is run but it didn't work so I posted it here.

Later I tried the same commands on my Linux Desktop and it worked.
