Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System Spring Training

NCAR is pleased to partner with CUAHSI 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. June 2-5, 2020 in Boulder, CO at NCAR Foothills Lab.

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. Preference will be given to applicants in the Academic and Nonprofit sectors.

Topics to be covered during the workshop include but are not limited to:

        Conceptualization and structure of the WRF-Hydro system         Description of physics components and options within WRF-Hydro         Model porting and compilation, and an overview of parallel computing with WRF-Hydro         Hands-on model input data preparation and creation of an example test case         Hands-on model configuration and execution         Hands-on experimental model simulations and comparisons with a prepared example test case         Hands-on example WRF|WRF-Hydro model coupled simulation         Overview of model calibration         Open discussion on class participant interests and applications & interactive activities

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. Lead Instructor: Dave Gochis, NCAR
