Running COSMO-WRF on very-high resolution over complex terrain

This is a technical documentation of the procedure to run the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model over complex alpine terrain using Consortium for Small-Scale Modeling (COSMO) reanalysis by the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology (MeteoSwiss) as initial and boundary conditions (COMSO-WRF). The setup is adapted for very high resolution simulations based on COSMO-2 (2.2 km resolution) reanalysis. This document gives an overview over steps to setup COSMO-WRF and adaptations needed to run COSMO-WRF. Additionally, the calculation of precipitation rate at a horizontal plane and remapping COSMO-WRF output on Swiss coordinates are documented.
