  1. WRF to GrADS Converter Cindy Bruyère

  2. GENERAL • This converter has been adapted from the one developed by Song-Yuo Hong from Dept. Atmospheric Sci., Yonsei University, Seoul,Korea. • Talk will concentrate on WRF mass model, but work the same for the height coordinate model.

  3. PURPOSE • Convert WRF output netCDF files to GrADS 'ieee' files format files(.dat files) • Create corresponding grads_control_files (.ctl files)

  4. SOFTWARE • The wrf_grads.tar file • Available from WRF web site • This script makes use of the "ncl" libraries - setup ncl • Issue: this requirement will be removed in future releases • GrADS software • You can download and install GrADS from http::/grads/iges.org/grads

  5. HARDWARE • The code has been ported to: • DEC Alpha • Linux • SGI • But, should run on any machine that can run the NCL software

  6. Converter Files • README.wrf_grads • make_ncl_fortran • make_ncl_fortran.alpha • make_ncl_fortran.rhlinux • namelist.input • wrf_grads.sh • wrf_user.ncl • wrf_user_fortran_util_0.f

  7. Make Link to NCL • README.wrf_grads • make_ncl_fortran • make_ncl_fortran.alpha • make_ncl_fortran.rhlinux • namelist.input • wrf_grads.sh • wrf_user.ncl • wrf_user_fortran_util_0.f

  8. Make Link to NCL • make_ncl_fortran \ wrf_user_fortran_util_0 • If successful: • so_locations • wrf_user_fortran_util_0.o • wrf_user_fortran_util_0.so • wrf_user_fortran_util_0_W.c

  9. ISSUES • Biggest problem in this step is the wrapit77 function • wrapit77 is part of NCAR Graphics, and the path to this function needs to be specified (.cshrc file) correctly

  10. Edit NAMELIST • README.wrf_grads • make_ncl_fortran • make_ncl_fortran.alpha • make_ncl_fortran.rhlinux • namelist.input • wrf_grads.sh • wrf_user.ncl • wrf_user_fortran_util_0.f

  11. Edit NAMELIST interp_pressure=0 plevels="1000., 925.,850.,700.,600.,500.,400.,300.,200.,150." Model 3D Fields if_plot_3dn=0 QCLOUD = "-" ; if_plot_3dn=0 QRAIN = "-" ; if_plot_3dn=0 TKE = "TURBULENCE KINETIC ENERGY" ; ………….. Post-Processed 3D fields if_plot_3dd=1 ua = "X WIND COMPONENT" ; if_plot_3dd=1 va = "Y WIND COMPONENT" ; if_plot_3dd=1 wa = "Z WIND COMPONENT" ; ………………

  12. Edit NAMELIST Model Soil Fields if_plot_slf=0 SMOIS = "SOIL MOISTURE" ; if_plot_slf=0 TSLB = "SOIL TEMPERATURE" ; Model 2D Fields if_plot_2dn=0 HGT = "Terrain Height" ; if_plot_2dn=0 Q2 = "QV at 2 M" ; if_plot_2dn=1 RAINCV = "TIME-STEP CUMULUS PRECIPITATION" ; if_plot_2dn=0 TH2 = "TEMP at 2 M" ; ……………. Post-Processed 2D fields if_plot_2dd=1 slvl = "surface pressure" ;

  13. Run Script • wrf_grads.sh wrfout_file >& log • This will create the following files: • log • netcdf_ieee.f • wrfout_map.nc.bin.ctl • wrfout_map.nc.bin.ieee • wrfout_map.nc.bin_map.ctl • wrfout_map.nc.head • wrfout_map.nc.ncl

  14. Run ISSUES • The wrf_output_file_name gets renamed from: • wrf_output  wrf_output.nc • This means that if you run the script a second time, it will not find the file.

  21. ISSUES • NCL • Fortran 90 • Time interval not calculated – must be changed manually in the .ctl file
