Polar Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF)
Entry ID: Polar_WRF

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Based on extensive experience with mesoscale modeling in the polar regions by the Polar Meteorology Group of the Byrd Polar Research Center at The Ohio State University, the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) has been modified for use in the Polar Regions (referred to as the Polar WRF). A development approach is adopted similar to that used previously to implement the Polar version of ... View entire text
