This is a collection of software tools (scripts/small programs) used by the different groups and contributed to the community to avoid duplicated efforts.
CLWRF are WRF source code modifications for climate runs.
CMOR pre-processor is, by now, a "recipe" on how to get CMIP5 scenario data from the ESG server and use the CDO to feed them to WRF. This is a collaboratice effort. Please, check the procedure and provide alternative/improved ways of getting to run WRF with CMIP5 data.
fortnml is a Python script to manage fortran namelists, modifying them from the command line and can also be used as a namelist "beautifier". Also checks for WRF recomendations.
wrfout_to_cf_v1.2.ncl Current version is v 1.2 as of 1 Apr 2011. This is a useful tool to convert raw WRF output to CF compliant files. Currently the script does not handle all WRF-CORDEX variables but will continue to be updated here. Note that the units, sign conventions, etc, are not necessarily the same as those required by CORDEX - be careful! An older version of this script, not modified to be CORDEX-friendly, is also available from NCAR: wrfout_to_cf.ncl
WRF NetCDF Extract&Join (wrfncxnj) is a tool written in python that allows the user to generate CF compliant NetCDF files from the files generated by WRF. The tool is intended to be used from the command line or a Shell script, and offers many options as flags.
Work in progress
- p_interp is being modified by the Santander Meteorology Group (SMG) to get vertical integrals in native coordinates, mslp, and several other variables
A python script to get cf-compliant files and several additional variables is under way at the SMG ( wrfncxnj)
- The group at the Instituto dom Luiz (U. Lisbon) is working in the evapotranspiration
- CMOR pre-processor to ingest CMIP5 data into WRF
