The integration of the WRF Model in the Africa Grid Science Gateway featured at the EGU2014 Assembly

The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation meso-scale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both atmospheric research and operational forecasting needs. WRF has a large worldwide community counting more than 20,000 users in 130 countries and it has been specifically designed to be the state-­of-­the-­art atmospheric simulation system being portable and running efficiently on available parallel computing platforms.


WRF features two dynamical cores, a data assimilation system, and a software architecture allowing for parallel computation and system extensibility. The model serves a wide range of meteorological applications across scales ranging from meters to thousands of kilometers.

The integration of  WRF Model in the Africa Grid Science Gateway has been presented at the 2014 Assembly of the European Geosciences Union recently held in Vienna, Austria. The poster presented at the EGU2014 Assembly can be inspected here.

The CHAIN-REDS project is also pleased to inform that a use case of the well known WRF Model has been integrated in the CHAIN-REDS Science Gateway.
