Maybe you need to take the map scale factor into account.

Subject: [Wrf-users] Surface area of domain

Greetings fellow WRF-ers,

I am interested in obtaining the surface area of my domain. I can do a
crude calculation, based on the number of grid cells, grid cell
resolution, etc., but I am wondering if there is an actual WRF output
variable that better takes into account the varying lat/lon distance (my
domain encompasses the entire US, parts of Mexico, Canada, etc.).

Looking forward to any advice.

thank you,
