Bogus land temperatures after initial values?

Postby serra » Tue Jun 14, 2011 5:30 pm

Does anyone know what WRF does with the land surface values after the first time step in the run? We have ocean surface temperatures for our time period of interest, but not land surface temperatures. Since we are running a multi-year run, we were just going to use the air temperature at the first forcing data level to initiate the model. We are using the Unified Noah model for the land so surface temperature should be calculated for all subsequent time steps internally. Is it ok to just force with ocean surface temperatures where land regions are missing data values after the first time step?

Thanks...
