Units of west_east and south_north coordinates?


New member
Hi all,

I'm a new WRF user and want to know the values in km of the gridpoints in some WRF output I am working with. I noticed that much of the output data is in coordinates of 'west_east' and 'south_north'. However, I have been unable to figure out whether these coordinates simply indicate the number of gridpoints in the west-east and south-north directions, or whether they contain the values in km of the gridpoints used in the model.

Thanks for the help in advance!
