This benchmark is a mesoscale numerical weather prediction system. For more details, see the SPEC CPU2017 documentation.
From the partial report, we found that execution varies more when parameters are changed than with changes to input dataset. The report was created with Kit 93, and compilation failed with ICC.
We have created scripts that can generate inputs from WRF data and able to change multiple parameters for them. They can be downloaded here.
We created twelve additional inputs created using data available online, and by altering the parameters. The data for the inputs is from NCEP and NCAR/DSS.
