Hello, I am fairly new to NCl but I looked at every example I could find before posting here.

When using wrf_user_getvar to get the variable "z" it says that this is the Full model height [m]. Is this the same as the height AGL?

I could not find a sample for a graph of a variable such as wind plotted as a line against height AGL for a specified lat/lon and time. Does anyone have any examples of this?
