Running WRF-GC is similar to WRF-Chem.


Contents

Running the WPS

Running the WRF Preprocessing System (WPS) is to prepare input to drive WRF. Please refer to the WRF User's Guide for more detail:

http://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/users/docs/user_guide_V3.9/users_guide_chap3.html


- Step 1: Define model domains with geogrid

In the "geogrid" namelist record, the projection of the simulation domain is defined. Only two possible map projections and parameters are supported in WRF-GC:
• Mercator /'mercator' (truelat1)
• Unrotated regular latitude-longitude /'lat-lon' (pole_lat, pole_lon, stand_lon)


- Step 2: Extracting meteorological data from GRIB files with ungrib

Downloading meteorological data for the real data case

- Step 3: Horizontally interpolating meteorological data with metgrid


Preparing GEOS-Chem shared data directories

The GEOS-Chem shared data directories contain many large files necessary for the WRF-GC. Please Set up the top-level root directory for GEOS-Chem shared data, which is called ExtData. Please create the /dir/to/data/ExtData and set your directories in the "input.geos" file:

       Root data directory : /dir/to/data/ExtData


The ExtData directory structure cotains two subdirectories:


- CHEM_INPUT: Non-emissions data for GEOS-Chem chemistry modules

• Download the CHEM_INPUT data directories via anonymous FTP from the Harvard data directory archive (ftp.as.harvard.edu). Please refer to : http://wiki.seas.harvard.edu/geos-chem/index.php/Downloading_GEOS-Chem_source_code_and_data


- HEMCO: Emissions inventories for the HEMCO emissions component

• Download the HEMCO data directories with a pakeage provided by GEOS-Chem Support Team. Please refer to : http://wiki.seas.harvard.edu/geos-chem/index.php/HEMCO_data_directories#Downloading_the_HEMCO_data_directories


• Set the HEMCO data directory in the "HEMCO_Config.rc" file
       Root : /dir/to/data/ExtData/HEMCO


Emissions for WRF-GC

Preparing emission files is not requied. WRF-GC uses Harvard-NASA Emissions Component (HEMCO) with on-line regridding. For more information on HEMCO data directories, please refer to the GEOS-Chem wiki:

http://wiki.seas.harvard.edu/geoschem/index.php/HEMCO_data_directories


Preparing chemical boundary condition data using global GEOS-Chem outputs
