Use of Environment Variables to Direct History Output Files


New member
Hello, I'd like to know if it is possible to use an environment variable to direct the output files from wrf.exe and if so, what the syntax would be in the namelist file. I'm thinking of something like the following:

  history_outname          = "WRFOUTDIR/wrfout_d<domain>_<date>"
  auxhist24_outname     = "WRFOUTDIR/auxhist24_d<domain>_<date>"
  auxhist3_outname       = "WRFOUTDIR/wrfxtrm_d<domain>_<date>"

I'm not aware of a way to do this with an environment variable setting, but if you figure that out, please let us know!
