This Training Course, which will provide theoretical lessons for an introduction to numerical weather prediction and regional climate modelling. Practical exercises are offered on working with the model system in all these different modes. They give the opportunity to compile the programs, run the model and analyze the output of NWP and RCM runs using standard scripts.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together palaeo-climatologists and modellers to develop best practice strategies for comparing transient simulations over periods from the Holocene to the Last Glacial Cycle with a focus on the
physical climate system.
The main focus of the workshop, building on the previous ENES HPC workshops, will be on high-resolution modelling. It will also address other issues such as Domain Specific Language, Coupling & I/O tools and will involve discussions about European and international HPC ecosystems and data centres support, as well ad the relationship with the EC strategy on HPC.
The series of two consecutive summer schools about the Earth’s Dynamic Surface is targeting a group of 25 doctoral students, aiming (1) to improve their skills to understand the complex interaction of the processes shaping the Earth’s surface at different temporal and spatial scales, (2) to monitor, model and predict the results of these interactions, and (3) to identify and mitigate risks of natural and human-caused interference in these processes in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment.
IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change.
The lectures target meteorologists with prior forecasting experience of synoptic-scale weather and prior exposure to the fundamentals of atmospheric dynamics. The lectures will cover the dynamics and prediction of severe thunderstorms and their attendant hazards.
The goal of the Testbed is twofold. First, it caters forecasters who want to learn how to forecast severe convective storms using state-of-the-art forecasting tools. Second, it is a hands-on evaluation of new, sometimes experimental, forecast products.
17th Swiss Climate Summer School: Earth system variability through time – processes, observations and models. Swiss Climate Research, the network of leading Swiss institutions in climate research and education, invites young scientists to join high-profile climate researchers in a scenic Swiss Alpine setting for keynote lectures, workshops and poster sessions.
This Course is specifically tailored to the needs of PhD students, postdocs and professional researchers in climatology, ecology, environmental sciences, geosciences, meteorology or hydrology. A basic knowledge in calculus and statistics is required.
The workshop is focused on a special field of “Forensic Meteorology”: to determine the type of a past damage event (windstorm or tornado) and to estimate the strength of the maximum wind. The participants are invited to visit the International Tornado Standard Working Group Meeting as guests.
