Thank you for visiting my issue.
The user guide emphasizes that "If satellite radiance data are to be used, a Radiative Transfer Model (RTM) is required. The current RTM versions that WRFDA supports are CRTM V2.2.3 and RTTOV V11.1–11.3 ".
As I wish to assimilate the FY4A/AGRI infrared radiance based on WRFDA with RTTOV12.2 which supports AGRI, so, I hope the RTTOV12.2 will be supported ? Is there any solution?
RTTOV12 will be supported from version 4.1. If you check out the WRF code from the latest WRF github repository, you can already use RTTOV12 with WRFDA. Jake.
