You may obtain the source for WRF Version 3.2.1 from the WRF Users Page after filling in the registration information at the bottom of the page. While the source is freely available, you will be asked to register if you are a new user.
A netCDF package built using the same major version of the PGI compilers is required. Please refer to the PGI Guide to netCDF for more information on building netCDF.
To build WRFV3, use
where <case_name> is one of the following: em_b_wave, em_hill2d_x, em_grav2d_x, em_quarter_ss, em_squall2d_x, em_squall2d_y, or em_real. All but em_real are idealized test cases. We suggest you separately build and run each test case to ensure your installation is correct. If all the test cases are correct, then build the em_real case.
Please refer to the WRF user's guide for more information about running a real case. For the idealized cases, please refer to the README_test_cases file located in the root of your WRFV3 directory.
To run each idealized case,
Each test case should print "SUCCESS" upon completion.
