The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both operational forecasting and atmospheric research needs. - Homepage: http://www.wrf-model.org
WRF is open to all HPRC users.
To see all versions of WRF available on Ada:
module spider WRF
Loading the WRF module will also load all other modules necessary to run WRF. To load the default WRF module on Ada:
module load WRF
To load a particular version of WRF on Ada (Example: 3.8.0):
module load WRF/3.8.0-intel-2016a-dmpar
Usage on the Compute Nodes
Non-interactive batch jobs on the compute nodes allows for resource-demanding processing. Non-interactive jobs have higher limits on the number of cores, amount of memory, and runtime length.
For instructions on how to create and submit a batch job, please see the appropriate wiki page for each respective cluster:
- Ada: About Ada Batch Processing
- Terra: Terra Link
#BSUB -J wrftest # sets the job name to myjob1. #BSUB -L /bin/bash # uses the bash login shell to initialize the job's execution environment. #BSUB -W 10:00 # sets to 10 hours the job's runtime wall-clock limit. #BSUB -n 40 # assigns 40 cores for execution. #BSUB -R "span[ptile=20]" # assigns 20 cores per node. #BSUB -R "rusage[mem=2700]" # reserves 2700MB per process/CPU for the job #BSUB -M 2700 # sets to 2,700MB the per process enforceable memory limit. #BSUB -o wrf.%J # directs the job's standard output to wrf.jobid # Load the modules module load WRF/3.8.0-intel-2016a-dmpar # Use mpirun to start wrf mpirun wrf.exe
