DCMIP Summer School on Future-Generation Non-hydrostatic Weather and Climate Models

February 21, 2012

 

We are announcing the following opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the atmospheric sciences, applied mathematics or related fields:

Dynamical Core Model Intercomparison Project (DCMIP):

DCMIP Summer School on Future-Generation Non-hydrostatic Weather and Climate Models

Dates: July 30 - August 10,2012

 

The application period will run from mid February to the end of March, 2012.

 

This multidisciplinary two-week summer school and model intercomparison project will be held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research from July 30 to August 10, 2012. This summer school brings together graduate students, postdocs, atmospheric modelers, expert lecturers and computer specialists to create a stimulating, unique and hands-on driven learning environment. It will lead to an unprecedented student-run international model intercomparison project, and thereby train the future generation of scientists engaged in global atmospheric model developments. Special attention is paid to the role of emerging non-hydrostatic global atmospheric models.

 

In particular we focus on atmospheric dynamical cores, which describe the fluid flow component of general circulation models. The summer school and model intercomparison project will `promote active learning, innovation, discovery, mentorship and the integration of science and education. We anticipate testing about 10-12 dynamical cores that represent a broad spectrum of the modeling approaches in the international weather and climate modeling community.
