Thank you for your help

By letting geogrid.exe read and process it, geogrid can pass on fractional amounts of landuse through to WRF. The variable name is landusef. The Pleim-Xiu land surface model uses those fractional amounts. I intend to change the Noah LSM to also use fractional amounts (and make other changes).

I'm trying to achieve this using GRASS. The motivation of this mail is I want to know if someone has proceeded as me.
