**When emailing WRFHELP to ask for assistance with your problems, please consider the following tips for a quicker solution:
  • Indicate the problem in the subject line.

  • If you are having problems compiling, provide information regarding the type of system you are using, which compiler you are using, whether you are compiling in parallel/serial/etc. Also provide a compile log that shows the error message, as well as your configure file.

  • If you have made any modifications to the code, please test the provided (un-modified) version of the code first, and please let us know the modifications you have made.

  • Please always include the version of the code you are working with.

  • For run-time problems, locate the error messages and include them in the email (if you have rsl* files, please send your rsl.error.0000 and rsl.out.0000 files).

  • For most run-time issues, providing your namelist file is essential.
