NWP/WRF tutorial

In order to get a virtual machine up and running, install VirtualBox and Vagrant (available for many operating systems). Alternatively (but EXPERIMENTAL - note the WRF+OpenMPI does not properly work with Docker): Docker and Vagrant.

Clone this repository

> git clone https://git.hacknology.de/projekte/wrftut.git



> cd wrftut
wrftut> vagrant up

This downloads and starts the prepared virtual machine image (~2GB). The virtual machine can either used directly, or via ssh:

wrftut> vagrant ssh

Docker Vagrantbox (EXPERIMENTAL)

Alternatively, try the Docker Vagrantbox via

> cd wrftut
> cp Vagrantfile Vagrantfile-vbox
> cp Vegrantfile-docker Vagrantfile
> vagrant up
> vagrant ssh

(you may need to enter the password for box user vagrant, which is vagrant)


Alternatively, if you don’t like to use Vagrant, you can try to use the Docker image directly.

> docker pull tcriess/wrftut-2019
> docker run -p 2222:22 -d tcriess/wrftut-2019
> ssh -p 2222 vagrant@

(Username/Password for ssh is vagrant/vagrant)

Compiling and running WRF

See presentation.


There are also Vagrantboxes containing all executables and all result files. Edit the Vagrantfile to use the “-complete” Vagrantbox instead.

Visualising the results

Programs for visualisation are best run on the host, not on the virtual machine. We catch a short glimpse of QGIS, IDV and VAPOR, so if make sure to have at least one of these installed on your laptop.
