June 5-8, 2018 || Boulder, CO
Application Deadline: February 28, 2018
CUAHSI is pleased to partner with NCAR to offer the Training Workshop: The Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System, a 3.5-day hands-on training workshop on the use and applications of the Community
WRF-Hydro Modeling System.
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:
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 in Boulder, CO.
Conceptualization and structure of the WRF-Hydro system
Description of physics components options within WRF-Hydro v5.0
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
Test cases and experimental runs
Setup and use of the open source Rwrfhydro hydrologic model evaluation package
Open discussion on class participant interests and applications
Applicants must apply to attend the workshop. Applications will be accepted from current and incoming graduate students, post-docs, academics,
and professionals working in hydrology and/or the atmospheric sciences. Instructors will review applications to verify in advance that the applicant has the necessary skills and experience to successfully participate in the workshop and get the most out of
the course topics.
How to Apply
Prior hydrologic and/or atmospheric modeling experience is advised.
Must be comfortable working in a UNIX environment, running UNIX command line operations and text editors.
Familiarity with the R programming language is recommended.
Applications will be accepted starting January 15, 2018. Complete applications will be accepted on a
rolling basis until 5:00 p.m. ET on February 28, 2018.
However, we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis on first-come, first-served basis. We reserve the right to review only the first 50 applications. Past offerings
of this course have filled up very quickly.
