In this tutorial, we will be studying how to prepare our computer to use WRF. I have created a version of the model called e-WRF (WRF for Educational Purposes). This version allows you to run WRF without having to install it. Working with e-WRF is just like working with the regular model. There is no difference between them. The only thing you will need is to use a program called VirtualBox, which we will be learning more about later on.
There are a number of skills you will be learning in this tutorial, such as working with Linux, learning how to set up e-WRF, checking that your installation is working properly and making your first plot using ncview.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial. If you have any questions along the way, you can use the Forum to ask them. Make sure you ask questions, this is part of the learning process.
