Climate models are fundamental tools for learning about our planet, assisting scientists and governments, and in assessing current and future risks and vulnerabilities. The reality of today’s climate modelling landscape, with ever more complex numerical models, running on the world’s largest supercomputers, requires a high degree of competence and efficiency, which must be instilled in scientists at the early stages of their careers. This type of highly specialised training is virtually absent in academia.

The High-Resolution Climate Modelling projects within NCAS, in collaboration with the Met Office, have continued to push the limit of today’s climate modelling frontiers and have generated a high level of expertise, which will be returned to students in the form of knowledge through our summer school. This fourth NCAS Summer School will continue the bi-annual climate modelling series offered to the UK and international community.

The Summer School 2013 will focus on providing skills that can bring scientists from different disciplines in touch with the state-of-the-art and with current developments for the future generation of climate models. This will be achieved through exposure to advanced theoretical lectures and seminars in climate system science, but strengthened daily with hands-on work on methods and practicals.
