WRF and Openfoam coupling tool - WRFextraction

Hello,

I am interested in the tool WRFextraction in SOWFA. It allows to create the boundary condition files for OpenFOAM from WRF file.nc.
https://github.com/NREL/SOWFA/blob/master/tools/WRFextraction/README

According to README, first I created WRFTOOF directory and compile the program, then cd into run directory of openFoam where I save my WRF nc file. Now I am confused about “WRFTOOF expects OpenFOAM boundary definitions in files named “<bdyname>_bc.dat” and “interior.dat”.

How I could provide these OpenFOAM boundary definitions files? Is there the examples of these boundary definition files? They aren’t In the exampleCases” example.mesoscaleInfluence.SWiFTsiteLubbock.11Nov2013Diurnal”.

Thank you,

Ru
