The answer is actually pretty easy. The WRF model lies on a grid. The vertical component of the grid is unevenly spaced, though you can manually space it. The vertical coordinate of WRF uses a sigma vertical coordinate (even though the namelist calls them eta): $$\sigma=\frac{P-P_{surface}}{P_{top}-P_{surface}}$$. So the values of sigma are specified (or ...
