Home > WRF NMM documentation

WRF-NMM was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The NOAA/NCEP and the Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) are currently maintaining and supporting the WRF-NMM portion of the overall WRF code (Version 2) that includes:

  • Nonhydrostatic Mesoscale Model (NMM) dynamic solver, including one-way static nesting;
  • WRF Preprocessing System (WPS) / Standard Initialization (SI) package;
  • Numerous physics packages contributed by WRF partners and the research community;
  • WRF Postprocessing (WPP) package and scripts for several graphical packages.

NOMADS contains NAM output over the following locations:

  • CONUS (awphys) on the 12-km Lambert-conic conformal grid (#218)
  • North America (awip32) on the 32-km polar-stereographic grid (#221)
  • Alaska (awak3d) on the 11.25-km polar-stereographic grid (#242)
  • Hawaii/Central Pacific (afwahi) on a 0.108 deg latitude/longitude grid (#182)
  • Caribbean/Central America (afwaca) on a 0.108 deg latitude/longitude grid (#181)
The domains covered by the NAM and these output grids can be viewed at http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/namgrids.
