Run WRF-solar


New member
My question is about the possibility of using the output (Aerosol optical depth(AOD)) from a chemistry transport model
to feed and run the WRF-Solar for the estimation of irradiances(GHI & DNI) and what is the correct way to do it ?
You need the AOD at 550 nm. You can impose it to the WRF-Solar simulation to account for the aerosol direct effect by setting aer_opt = 2 in the physics block of the WRF namelist.
Please take a look at the documentation in the user guide part of the WRF-Solar website:
