MPAS Tutorial

MODEL FOR PREDICTION ACROSS SCALES – ATMOSPHERE (MPAS-A) TUTORIAL

30- 31 July 2018

NCAR Foothills Lab, Boulder, CO

OVERVIEW

The Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM) Laboratory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) will be hosting a Tutorial on the Model for Prediction Across Scales – Atmosphere (MPAS-A). The tutorial will be held 30 – 31 July 2018 at NCAR’s Foothills Laboratory at 3450 Mitchell Lane in Boulder, Colorado. The tutorial will cover the basics of how to set-up, run, and post-process stand-alone MPAS-A simulations, and topics that will be covered will include:

  1. Horizontal (uniform and variable resolution) mesh configuration
  2. Real-data and idealized case initialization
  3. MPAS-A dynamical solver and numerical methods
  4. MPAS-A physics
  5. Software framework and MPAS infrastructure
  6. Post-processing tools

The primary audience for this tutorial is new or beginning users of MPAS-Atmosphere. Basic knowledge of atmospheric science and numerical modeling, as well as experience working within a Unix computing environment, is required for the tutorial.
