Beginning in 2012, the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM) division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has received funding for a full-time position for community support for the WRF Data Assimilation system (WRFDA). The aims of this position have been to maintain and improve WRFDA documentation, achieve prompt responses to WRFDA-related queries to the wrfhelp service, and facilitate code development by enabling a smoother transition for user-contributed code and capabilities into the WRFDA system.

This presentation will document the various community-support services available to WRFDA users, including our website, online and on-site tutorials, user's guide and technical note.
