With funding from National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs [NSF OPP], we are organizing a 1-week long CESM Polar Modeling Workshop at the National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesa Laboratory. The workshop will target ~15 early career (graduate student, postdoc, < 7 years since Ph.D.) polar scientists to attend. All workshop activities will focus on the Community Earth System Model and high performance computing supported by the National Science Foundation [NSF] at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center [NWSC]. CESM Polar Modeling Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience planning, designing, executing, and analyzing earth system modeling experiments using high-performance supercomputing. Participants will engage in advanced activities focused specifically on capacity building for using CESM in polar research (e.g., sea ice, land ice, atmosphere, ocean, land, paleoclimate).
The CESM Polar Modeling Workshop will follow directly from the Annual CESM Tutorial held August 6-10, 2018. Prospective participants who have not attended the CESM Tutorial should apply for both the CESM Tutorial and the CESM Polar Modeling workshop. Prospective participants who have previously attended the CESM Tutorial (or have equivalent experience) should apply for just the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop.
All participant expenses will be paid by the organizers (including travel to Boulder, Colorado).
