WRF NAMELIST.INPUT FILE DESCRIPTION

WRF NAMELIST.INPUT FILE DESCRIPTION

The namelist.input file is used for both the real.exe and wrf.exe executables. Within the file, multiple columns are used for multiple domains (nests) and the “max_dom” parameter determines the number of domains (and nests) to use. So, for example, if you define 3 columns for parameter in the namelist but set max_dom = 2, the last column will be ignored. Note that not all parameters have multiple columns.

<WRF INSTALL DIR>/run/README.namelist contains descriptions of all the namelist variables as well as variables that can be added to the namelist for special model setups.
<WRF INSTALL DIR>/test/em_real directory contains several sample namelist.input files.

Name Value Description
     

&time_control


Time control

run_days

1

run time in days

run_hours

0

run time in hours
Note: if it is more than 1 day, one may use both run_days and run_hours or just run_hours. e.g. if the total run length is 36 hrs, you may set run_days = 1, and run_hours = 12, or run_days = 0, and run_hours 36

run_minutes

0

run time in minutes

run_seconds

0

run time in seconds

2001

Four digit year of starting time

12

Two digit hour of starting time

start_minute (max_dom)

00

Two digit minute of starting time

start_second (max_dom)

00

Two digit second of starting time. Note: the start time is used to name the first wrfout file. It also controls the start time for nest domains, and the time to restart
