Palm Seminar

The PALM modelling group of the Institute of Meteorology and Climatology at the Leibniz University Hannover, Germany, is offering a full time 5-day seminar from 14 to 18 August 2023. The seminar will be given in presence.

PALM is an advanced and state-of-the-art meteorological modeling system for atmospheric and oceanic boundary layer flows. It was developed as a turbulence-resolving large-eddy simulation (LES) model specifically designed to run on massively parallel computer architectures. Meanwhile, turbulence closure based on the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations has been added so that PALM can run not only in turbulence-resolving mode (i.e., LES) but also in RANS mode, in which the entire turbulence spectrum is parameterized.

The one week seminar gives an overview of PALM, and demonstrates how to carry out runs on Linux computers/notebooks provided by the participants.

Besides the theoretical lessons, there will be hands-on sessions, where participants carry out exercises under the guidance of the lecturers. The lecture and exercise PDFs can be downloaded.

This seminar is designed for future scientific users of PALM, who have yet little to no experience with PALM.

For more information see the detailed announcement and the registration form, which you need to send back to giersch@meteo.uni-hannover.de if you want to participate.

Deadline for registration: 3 July 2023, or as soon as 50 places will be filled.
