How can I improve the model domain?

Hello,

I have heard that If you usually work with the same domain you can get better results if you improve the model domain, is this correct?. Do you know where can I read something about it?

Thank you very much!

Hi Javiro,

I'm having a bit of trouble understanding your question: do you want to improve your results by nesting? (Nesting is when you choose a smaller domain within your bigger domain at a better resolution.) If this is your question, then yes. You can compile WRF with different nesting options.

Of course, if I entirely misunderstood your question, let me know!

I'm sorry, I formulated the question wrongly. I was trying to ask if you can implement your own terrain model instead of using the terrestrial input data from these links:

I have heard you can get better results on this way but I know nothing about, I'd like to find some information about it.

Thanks
