What might be the influence of some met model input parameters in a specific terrain?

All other topics about postprocessing model data (GrADS and other software), about other numerical weather prediction software (including WRF-NMM and WRF-ARW discussion unrelated to UEMS/WRF EMS), and general meteorology talk go in this forum.

Hello,

Could anybody describe in a few words what might be the influence of
1. the number of vertical layers,
2. land surface model,
3. 4D Data Assimilation,
4. Integration Time Step and
5. Shortwave radiation scheme
on the surface and upper air wind speed and direction predictions in a flat and complex terrain conditions of a meteorological model (e.g. WRF)?
