Dear WRF Forum,

I would like to specify a WRF domain with different dx and dy (dx /= dy in namelist.wps); however, geogrid seems to force dy == dx. Is this normal code behavior? If so, is there another namelist parameter that allows dx /= dy?

Note: I am checking the values assigned to DX and DY via ncdump.

Thanks in advance,
Hi John,
If you use a lat-lon map projection (map_proj), then the grid distance is in degrees, and you should be able to use different values for x/y.
