Joint WCRP and DCMIP Summer School on Earth System Model Development: Dynamical cores and physics-dynamics coupling, August 10-14, 2020,Boulder, USA

The Dynamical Core Model Intercomparison Project (DCMIP) and its joint World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Summer School highlights the newest modeling techniques for global Earth system models. The overarching theme of this summer school is physics-dynamics coupling.

The objectives of the joint WRCP and DCMIP Summer School are (1) to teach a group of 30 extraordinary multi- disciplinary students and postdocs how today’s and future atmospheric models are or need to be built, and (2) to use idealized test cases to expose selected model design choices in simplified modeling frameworks based on NCAR’s Community Earth System Model (CESM) and the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM). DCMIP-2020 thereby continues the DCMIP-2008, DCMIP-2012 and DCMIP-2016 model intercomparison and summer school series as well as the 1st and 2nd WCRP summer school series on Climate Model Development.
Travel support is available for approximately 30 students and postdocs.
