Ute-WRF/

Mostly for post processing WRF output data. Python codes that I've created at the University of Utah Mountain Meteorology Group. For more info about running WRF see http://home.chpc.utah.edu/~u0553130/Brian_Blaylock/wrf.html

cross_section_*.py...............plot a cross section through the model domain (wrfout or auxhist files)

plot_*.py........................plot a 2D map view of data at the surface or a model level

tslist_*.py......................plot data from a ts file or vertical profile output

####Functions

"functions" folder includes functions dealing with various needs for processing WRF data. Note: some of these have been renamed since I wrote my other plotting scripts.

custom_domains.py................dictionary of predefined subdomain lat/lon for plotting basemap

landuse_colormap.py..............colormap for WRF landuse categories: MODIS20, MODIS21, NLCD, USGS

terrain_colormap.py..............colormap for terrain. Set lake mask to low number for blue water

read_tslist.py...................read data in the tslist file which includes station name, lat, lon

get_ts_data.py...................loads station header, time series file, vertical profile variables

trim_map.py......................trims wrf data. Useful if you have a large domain and only want a section

wind_calcs.py....................convert from UV components to speed and direction, vice versa, etc.

staggered_to_mass.py.............converts U and V variables on a staggered grid to the mass point value.

####Modificaitons

"modifications" folder includes modificaitons to WRF code.

Initialize WRF with HRRR analyses (custom WPS tables):

METGRID.TBL.HRRR.bkb...........................Metgrid Table for HRRR analyses

Vtable.HRRR.bkb................................Vtable for HRRR analyses grib2 files

Initialize and set continuous passive tracer:

Registry.EM.bkb.tracer.........................Set new tracer variable in registry

module_initialize_real.F.bkb.tracer............Initialize a passive tracer (code snippit)

solve_em.bkb.tracer............................Create continuous tracer emit every timestep (code snippit)

Modify Great Salt Lake tempertaure:

module_initialize_real.F.bkb.LakeTemp..........Change Great Salt Lake temperature (code snippit)

Modify Great Salt Lake Area in MODIS landuse category (do this in WPS geo.em files):

shrink_GSL.py..................................Python script for changing lake area

####Other

"other" folder includes miscellaneous WRF code.

tslist.bkb...............................tslist file for defining locations for WRF output at model time step

untar_hrrr_files.csh.....................untar HRRR analyses from Horel Group archive
