WRF idealized TC set up

Hi all

I am new to the idealized WRF and planning to run a sets of idealized TC simulations. The domain is 3000km by 3000km with 15km horizontal resolution (default setting so far). I used one core for a seven-day simulation (also default), which took 20 hours... I increased the number of cores, but the simulation actually slowed down. If there is anyway to improve the efficiency?

Thank you so much for your time!

Hi...

Look under "WRF MODEL/Runtime Problems" for post:
"Poor performance wrf.exe with 56 core vs 16 or 28 core"

I answered the same kind of question there, I don't know if what I said works with simulation runs or not,
but it is worth trying it out.
