Regional Climate Modelling Workshop

The Met Office invites you to attend its annual Regional Climate Modelling workshop at Met Office Headquarters in Exeter from Tuesday 2nd to Friday 5th May 2017.

The workshop will teach participants the basics of regional climate modelling science using a combination of hands-on practical exercises and theoretical sessions. It is primarily aimed at users with little or no prior experience of running regional climate models and would be suitable for climate and environmental modellers, impacts and vulnerability assessment researchers and other researchers whose work requires the use of climate information.

The May 2017 workshop will feature the debut of a new way of running the PRECIS regional model: PRECIS in the Cloud. PRECIS will make use of the JASMIN cloud-computing / data-cluster facility at the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC). JASMIN provides a globally unique computational environment allowing scientists to bring their processing to the data. The workshop will give participants the necessary scientific and technical knowledge to run PRECIS on JAMSIN and to make best use of PRECIS output.

For further details on the PRECIS model and workshop please visit our website at <http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/precis>.

The workshop costs £500 per person, which includes training materials, lunches and a course dinner. All participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.

Met Office now invites you to submit your applications for the 2017 workshop. Please indicate your interest or forward this mail to colleagues who would find this workshop beneficial. Please note that there are a limited number of spaces available on this workshop and Met Office cannot guarantee all applicants a place. Applicants should send a short CV and concept note (covering motivation for attending, research interests and institution) to <precis@metoffice.gov.uk> for early
consideration of a place on the course.

The deadline for applications has expired.
