Model and Data Hierarchies for Simulating and Understanding Climate: Tutorials

March 9 - 12, 2010


We will offer tutorials in the first week of the program, to provide an introduction to the relevant problems as well as to the relevant concepts from mathematics, physics, atmospheric sciences, computer science, and other disciplines, and their applications.

The goal is to familiarize participants with the issues and techniques involved in Model and Data Hierarchies for Simulating and Understand Climate and to create a common language among researchers coming from different fields. The tutorial will be organized such that they cover the themes of the 4 workshops, which are:

  • Equation Hierarchies for Climate Modeling
  • Numerical Hierarchies for Climate Modeling
  • Simulation Hierarchies for Climate Modeling
  • Data Hierarchies for Climate Modeling
