WRF Operations Requirements Board

The primary function of the WRF Operational Research Board (WORB) was to define WRF program requirements necessary for the modeling system to support operational and real-time forecasting applications. Requirements were those scientific and technical attributes needed for WRF to be a viable tool for the operational and real-time communities. The WORB was to review WRF coding and documentation standards developed by working groups and, in concert with the DTC and any Operations Testbed Centers (OTCs), ensure their suitability for sustaining WRF for operational modeling as well as research applications. The head of the WORB was an ex officio member of the WRAB.
