How to report a problem

If you would like to report a problem, you may send an email to wrfhelp@ucar.edu, making use of the subject line to indicate the issue. If you have received an error message in attempting to compile and run the system software, please include it in the email.

For compilation problems, return the code to the original state (e.g. by typing clean -a for WRF, and make cleanall for WRF-NMM SI, or begin with a new tar file), recompile, and save the compilation output to a file, and send it in the email. If you have made modification to the code, always test the provided code first.

For run-time problems, locate the error messages, and include them in the email. In addition, including your namelist file is helpful.
