Running to Equilibrium - time & physics set up


New member
I am trying to put SST and ocean current data into WPS for the Gulf of Mexico, and then let the WRF model run to equilibrium. So, I don't want the systems to evolve.

1. How would I set this up in terms of time steps and boundary conditions? So they don't evolve?
2. Any physics recommendations for air-sea boundary layer focus?

WRF is not coupled with ocean model. It is hard to incorporate ocean current data into WRF.
All the PBL schemes in WRF are applied to both air-sea and land-sea boundary. Unfortunately most of the verification are conducted over land. Please refer to the literature to find appropriate PBL scheme for air-sea boundary layer.
