Soundings for idealized simulations:

Description of input_sounding files:

The format is the same as that for the WRF Model, as well as for the Klemp-Wilhelmson Model. Format is:

 1 line header that contains:  surface pressure (mb)    surface theta (K)    surface qv (g/kg)

 following lines are:  height (m)    theta (K)   qv (g/kg)    u (m/s)    v (m/s)

     where:   pres   =  pressure
              theta  =  potential temperature
              qv     =  mixing ratio
              u      =  west-east component of velocity
              v      =  south-north component of velocity

Make sure that height on the final line is greater than the model top.
