Could you run WRF forever?

Postby tbraam » Tue Jun 21, 2016 7:20 am

Hi all, just a thought I have.

What do you think would happen if you initialize WRF for an arbitrary domain setup and set a runtime of several years? Do you think you would see seasons, change in synoptic weather systems etc. etc?

Just share your thoughts on this. :)

Great question. Can you sponsor me for a machine so that I can run these tests for your sake ?

I will acknowledge you of course :-)

Even if you had the computer resource (lots of disk, no schedule maintenance, no system problems), it probably won't work. I seem to recall that other people have tried this, and things
eventually fail.

The best way is to run a series of jobs that write out "restart" files (which are *HUGE*), then run the model for a while. The next job starts where the previous one left off.
