## Introduction

WRF4G is a framework for executing and monitoring the WRF Modeling System (see this presentation for an introduction to WRF) on Distributed Computing Infrastructures(DCIs). It provides a flexible and easy way of designing complex experiments involving many simulations (multiple start/end dates, multi-ensemble simulations, long climate runs and so on). The monitor allows a precise control of the experiment's state, where broken simulations are automatically detected and relaunched at the next submission.

Given a list of computing resources that the user can access, WRF4G submits the experiment to them according to the experiment needs. Users can configure different DCIs such as HPC, Grid and Cloud resources. The output files are going to be stored depending on the resources used to run the simulations.

See the following presentation for further information.
