How to get started in the fire group
- Get an account on math server, Gross cluster, and Colibri cluster. Connect though the VPN, or sss from math. You are at the frontend.
- Set up your environment: type
source ~jmandel/bin/gnuand add this line to your .bashrc or .profile file
- Get WRF-Fire and compile on the front end. Choose gfortran/gcc and nesting=1.
- Run WRF-Fire on a simple example
- Submit WRF-Fire in a queue as a parallel job. See Gross user's documentation and Colibri user's documentation how.
- Look at the fire model files in WRF-SFIRE - these are all files in the WRFV3/phys directory named
- Look at the graph of current activity in the WRF-Fire code
- Read the WRF coding conventions
- Read the Users guide, updated continuously with the software.
- Look at the WRF User's guide but ignore the WRF-Fire chapter, which is obsolete and not updated.
- Refer to the WRF-Fire pages on the openwfm wiki for more information.
- WRF is written in Fortran. The fire model is in the "physics layer" and the WRF coding conventions for the physics layer basically restrict it to a subset of Fortran 77 except for the use of free source form and modules.
The OpenWFM Wiki
- This wiki has the WRF-SFIRE user guide, links to publications, data sources, etc.
- Get an account to edit. Contributions are welcome.
The CCM Wiki
- Get an account on this wiki and edit something.
- Get an account on the openwfm wiki and edit something.
The daseminar CVS repository
- Get password for the daseminar web image of the CVS repository and look at the repository on the web.
- Following the instructions, make a copy of the daseminar repository on your computer. Use this repository in particular to write any papers in LaTeX.
