This training workshop will provide graduate students and early career scientists with formal instruction on the structure and application of the WRF-Hydro system and will offer hands-on experience in setting up and running the system for several different research and prediction applications.
Specific topics to be covered during the workshop include:
· Conceptualization and structure of the WRF-Hydro system
· Description of physics components options within WRF-Hydro v3.0
· Model porting and compilation and overview of parallel computing with WRF-Hydro
· Model input data preparation
· Model configuration and execution
· Visualization and post-processing of model output
· Case studies (participants learn how to use the system in both one-way uncoupled and two-way coupled modes with the community WRF atmospheric model)
· Highlight presentation on the implementation and use of the RAPID channel routing model within the WRF-Hydro system
- Open discussion on class participant interests and applications
Class participants will receive in-depth training via lectures and hands-on activities on the implementation and use of the WRF-Hydro system where all hands-on tutorial activities will be conducted in a formal computer laboratory located at NCAR.
Prior hydrologic and/or atmospheric modeling experience is advised. Unix/Linux command line operation strongly recommended.
The course will be held at the Foothills Campus at NCAR in Boulder, Colorado. Tuition, breakfast and lunch (Monday – Wednesday), and shuttle transportation from the Holiday Inn Express to the Foothills Campus (Monday – Wednesday), and to the Denver International Airport (Thursday) are included in the registration fee.
