WRF Vertical Interpolation Scheme

WVERT sets vertical interpolation scheme for WRF fields. False = uses the HYSPLIT vertical interpolation scheme. TRUE = uses the WRF vertical interpolation scheme. The WRF vertical interpolation scheme mimics the vertical coordinate transformations within the WRF model. The difference between the two schemes is how they estimate the change in height between vertical levels. The HYSPLIT scheme calculates the change in height using the hypsometric equation while the WRF scheme uses the eta level, WRF dry mass, and WRF dry inverse density.
