Obtaining the UPP Code
The user can obtain the code in one of two ways:
The UPP package is now available on Github. To create a local copy of the remote UPP repository on your computer and get the CRTM submodules:
git clone -b release-tag-name --recurse-submodules https://github.com/NOAA-EMC/EMC_post UPPV4.1
where, release-tag-name is the release tag you wish to clone (e.g. for UPPV4.1 use the release tag dtc_post_v4.1.0).
This will clone the specified release of the EMC_post repository into a directory called UPPV4.1.
Download the release tarfile from the UPP website (here)
Once the tar file is obtained, gunzip and untar the file.
tar -xzvf UPPV4.1.tar.gz
This command will create a directory called UPPV4.1.
The remainder of this documentation assumes the top directory of the UPP is called UPPV4.1
Examine the UPP Source Code
Move into the UPPV4.1 directory you created:
Under the main directory of UPPV4.1 reside the following relevant subdirectories:
(* indicates directories that are created after the configuration step)
exec*: Contains the unipost executable after successful compilation
include*: Source include modules built/used during compilation of UPP
lib*: Libraries built/used by UPP that are separate from NCEPlibs
parm: Contains parameter files, which can be modified by the user to control how the post processing is performed.
scripts: Contains sample run scripts to process wrfout and fv3 history files.
- run_unipost: run unipost.
- run_unipostandgempak: run unipost and GEMPAK to plot various fields.
- run_unipostandgrads: run unipost and GrADS to plot various fields.
- run_unipost_frames: run unipost on a single file containing multiple forecast times. (WRF only)
- run_unipost_gracet: run unipost on forecast files with non-zero minutes/seconds. (WRF only)
- run_unipost_minutes: run unipost for sub-hourly forecast files. (WRF only)
- run_unipostandgrads_global: run unipost and GrADS for global wrfout files; results in single GRIB file. (WRF only)
sorc: Contains source codes for:
- arch: Machine dependent configuration build scripts used to construct *configure.upp*
- comlibs: Contains source code subdirectories for the UPP libraries not included in NCEPlibs
- crtm2: Community Radiative Transfer Model library
- wrfmpi_stubs: Contains some C and FORTRAN codes to generate libmpi.a library used to replace MPI calls for serial compilation.
- xml: XML support for the GRIB2 parameter file
- ncep_post.fd: Source code for unipost
