Leading scientists from the US National Center for Atmospheric Research will introduce you to the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model, a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system developed by them, designed for both atmospheric research and operational forecasting applications.
You will develop core WRF set-up and model execution skills, work with experts to understand how develop the model for your own modelling applications, and become part of the global WRF community.
The course culminates with a seminar providing the opportunity to hear how other WRF users and developers are using WRF for their scientific problems. You can also present your own work, and build a network of European and overseas scientists.
The fifth jointly-run NCAR-NCAS workshop and tutorials for European-based users of the WRF Model was run in Durham in Autumn 2017. The next course will take place in October 2019.
