New Support System

UPP is currently transitioning from using the upp-help@ucar.edu email system for user questions to web-based user forums for interacting with users and answering questions. Beginning October 1, 2020, users sending email questions to upp-help@ucar.edu will be directed to post their questions on the proper user forum. There are currently two forums users may wish to post questions depending on the topic: 1) The UPP section of the WRF Users Forum, and 2) The UPP section of the UFS Users Forum. As the names suggest, UPP questions related to processing WRF data should be posted to the WRF Forum. Other general UPP questions and those related to UFS applications should be posted to the UFS Forum. UPP staff will be monitoring the forums and addressing questions through these platforms.
