CESD/Modelling Opportunities

The Centre for Earth System Dynamics (CESD), within the SAGES pooling initiative (Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society, www.sages.ac.uk) is running a one-day course to help researchers to explore whether they can use the Met Office's "Unified Model" The day presents principles of climate modelling and then emphasises the use of UM version 4.5 with the global model HadCM3 and the regional model HadRM3 (typically run at 25km resolution). The Unified Model is so called because it united weather and climate modelling, which had previously been in separate codes. Most participants in the day will be considering use of the model to generate data representing future, current or past climates - for example monthly, annual or decadal patterns of rainfall and temperatures. The day will give a broad understanding of climate modelling with the Unified Model, with only a high-level description of the software and its engineering. Researchers from institutions in one of the Scottish pooling initiatives are invited to attend. It is hoped that cross-initiative collaboration might be encouraged by the day. Where: Crew Building, Kings Buildings, Edinburgh When: Friday May 14, Edinburgh 11am-5pm Details: http://tinyurl.com/y7r7gwl Registration closes on Friday May 7th. If you have further questions about the event, or about the possible relevance of the UM to your research, please contact me.
