Velocity with SLUCM higher than with BULK


New member
Dear all,

I am new to urban climate simulations and I have recently run two simulations using ERA5 data and WRF version 4.5.0. One of the simulations is done using the bulk scheme and the other with SLUCM. The thing is that over urban areas I get average seasonal values of w10=sqrt(u10^2+v10^2) higher for SLUCM than for BULK, which was unexpected for me as it was the opposite when I ran with version 4.1. Has someone experienced the same?

Thank you very much for your time.
