WRF using ERA5 data


New member
Hi all,

I and new in WRF and have always used NCEP data. Now, I would like to use ERA5 instead.

I know I have to download ERA5 data from:

However, I am a bit lost with all the data sets that are included. I can see "atmospheric surface analysis", "atmospheric vertical integrals", etc... , while I only saw one product when I used NCEP:

How could I download all the variables I need from ERA5?

Thanks in advance!
sorry I forgot the attach the file. Here it is.
