[Wrf-users] ARWPost-Postprocessor

Hello Satyaban,

Try setting

 plot = 'all_list'
 fields = 'height,theta,tc,tk,td,td2,rh,rh2,umet,vmet,pressure,u10m,v10m,wdir,wspd,wd10,ws10,slp,mcape,mcin,lcl,lfc,cape,cin,dbz,max_dbz,clfr'

In setting the variable 'plot', the 'all' will include all WRF output fields (from wrfout* files) that are post-processed by ARWpost by default, while the 'list' will, in addition to the aforementioned fields, add all fields listed in the 'fields' variable. The primary use of 'list' and 'fields' is to select diagnostic fields that can be computed by ARWpost. In the example here, the 'fields' variable lists all available diagnostic fields. In your case, you may wish to remove those fields you are not interested in saving from the 'fields' variable. For example, if you are only interested in height, temperature (K) and SLP, you would set

 fields = 'height,tk,slp'

Note that these diagnostic fields are not present in the wrfout* files, but are calculated by ARWpost.

Subject: [Wrf-users] ARWPost-Postprocessor

Dear All,
I am trying to postprocess the model output using ARWPost but 
facing some problem.

I tried to get all variables listed in the 'fields' section of
'namelist.ARWpost' file but I am not finding certain variables such
as td, rh, cape and cine etc.
I tested with 'all', 'basic', 'file' and 'list' in the
PLOT section but no success.

Please suggest, how can I get these variables using ARWPost.

Thanking you.

Best regards
