The Earth Sciences Department at BSC is organising a PATC course on Earth Sciences Simulation Environments.

The objective of this PATC course is to cover the  basics of a high performance computing (HPC) environment oriented towards earth science applications, specifically chemical weather  modelling and climate modelling. It will consist on lectures and hands-on tutorials and will be taught by several members of the Department.

More precisely, the course will cover:

  • Introduction to earth science fundamentals and modelling;
  • Basic usage of an HPC environment: shell, compilers, libraries, file systems, queuing system;
  • Build and configure targeted earth science applications with the NMMB/MONARCH chemical transport model and with the EC-EARTH climate model;
  • Execute and monitor numerical experiments using a workflow manager;
  • Analyse and visualise model outputs with a wide set of tools.

There is no registration fee but the attendees would need to cover the  expenses for travel, accommodation and meals.
