Dear all,
I have a question on wrf soil moisture initialization. I am using NARR data how ever I realize that there is a land class based soil moisture column in the file LANDUSE.TBL. How can I use this soil moisture instead of the NARR soil moisture. My goal is to use a prescribed initial soil moisture for each land use class, because the NARR soil moisture is too dry for irrigated area.
