WRF Research Applications Board

The primary function of the WRF Research Applications Board (WRAB) is to review trends and emerging science and technologies and to identify and prioritize those elements representing the greatest opportunities for advancing the capabilities of WRF for use by the research community. The WRAB meets annually at the WRF Users' Workshop. The head of the WRAB is a senior scientist recognized for leadership in mesoscale numerical weather prediction research, and WRAB membership consists of leaders of WRF working groups and of the research community. WRAB members are selected for their research expertise and span a broad cross-section of the atmospheric sciences to provide the vision and leadership for sustaining WRF as a modeling system for the research community. The WRAB may be contacted at wrf-wrab@wrf-model.org.
