Now Accepting Applications for
Training Workshop: The Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System

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.
 
Course Description
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 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
  • Model calibration
  • 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 in Boulder, CO.

Workshop Eligibility
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.

Requirements
  • 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.
How to Apply
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.
