GFDL - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory

GFDL to Host Summer School on Atmospheric Modeling

Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory will host a course to introduce users to the GFDL AM3 atmospheric model this summer, from July 16th to 20th.  The Summer School on Atmospheric Modeling will take students through all the steps involved in configuring, running, and analyzing results from GFDL’s climate model running on parallel supercomputers and attached to large-scale data archives.   The course will also provide an overview of the atmospheric model’s (AM3) scientific formulation. 

The course is aimed principally at advanced graduate students, postdocs and research staff. Priority will be given to candidates from NOAA labs who will directly benefit from learning to use GFDL models, especially those who collaborate with GFDL. Approximately 25 students will be accepted for this course. 

The deadline for applications is March 16, 2012.  Please see the summer school web site for more information, and to apply.
