[Wrf-users] Comparing U,V 10 meters to observations

Hi, Juan,

It depends what you are using wind field for as well as your grid
resolution. For regional air quality analysis, we normally evaluate
simulated wind fields with hourly-mean observations. So can you do it by
using "history_interval =60" in your namelist.input. Hope this is

Hi everyone,


I am interested on validating the WRF 10m wind forecast with
observational data. I would like to know what is the corresponding
average scale for the WRF 10m winds, that is, do the correspond to
1-minute, 10-minute average winds or what kind of average, if any?


My WRF configuration outputs wind every 3 hours.


Thanks for your help, 

Juan Gonzalez
