Hi there,
I`m trying to run the WRF 4.3. with the mp_physics=28 (AerosolThompson),When specifying the mp_physics=28 in the namelist.input,
QNICE, QNWFA, QNRain, and ... doesn't have any value in wrfbdy .
does someone know what is the problem?

I send an image of the variable in wrfbdy that they have not any value !!

Please take a look at this website:
where you can find a link to download data specifically for mp_physics=28.
Please let me know if you still have issues with this scheme.
hi. thanks for reply.
I actually use this data:QNWFA_QNIFA_Monthly_... from but I have the same problem.
what is the different between "QNWFA_QNIFA_Monthly" and "QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat" ?
Those data from the WPS website are old data. To use these ld data. GFS pressure level should be reduced to keep consistent with pressure levels of aerosol data. Since WRFv3.9, the data is updated to QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat, and no extra procedure is needed to keep them consistent with pressure levels of upper level meteorological input.
