How to get WRF2GrADS for WRFV3?

Postby jessica8491 » Tue May 05, 2009 11:59 am

I disturbed a long time.I compile WRFV3.0.1 and WPS 3.0.1 both succefully in Fedora10(I didn't get PGI license.dat,but dowload the binary NetCDF).
In this page, ... -GUIDE.htm
it point out that we can obtain the WRF2GrADS TAR file from the WRF Download page: ... ource.html
I have been looking for a long time but did't find out WRF2GrADS TAR.
While in ARWUsersGuideV3,it only ask us to view the GrADS home page:
So I'd like to ask how to get WRF2GrADS for WRFV3?
Another question is,do RIP,Grads,ARWpost all need PGI?
Thank you so much!

I was wondering the same thing, downloaded RIP4, but could not get pgi installed so i can't use it. now I have is gempak/grads files and dont know how to display them outside of IDV, and the scripts in the folder do not seem to work. I am asking PGI right now about the problem on their forums. Grads crashes saying "this does not look like a valid metagram."

I've just got the file. Go to ... urce2.html

and go down to

Convert WRF model output in netCDF to GrADS format (Updated 8/31/06 - Add ability to process WRFVar data)
Package replaced by ARWpost - limited support still available for this conversion package.

(it's just before the WRF utilities).

Cheers, Mai
