CMAQv5.0.2 M3DRY backward compatibility
M3dry can now read either C-staggered (UWINDC and VWINDC) and B-staggered (UWIND and VWIND) from MET_DOT_3D to maintain compatibility with MCIP version 4 and earlier.
Significance and Impact
Maintains backward compatibility with MCIP. There is no change in the run time or model output.
