The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is offering a week-long CLM tutorial 12-16 September 2016. This tutorial will use a combination of lectures and practical sessions to provide an introduction to the Community Land Model.

Learning objectives include:

  • Understanding ecological, biogeochemical, and biogeophysical theory underpinning the CLM
  • Running and modifying components of the CLM
  • Analyzing CLM output

The tutorial will be taught primarily by the staff of the Terrestrial Sciences Section at NCAR and is intended for graduate students in ecology, hydrology, environmental sciences, climate or related fields. Early career research scientists and faculty are also encouraged to apply, though if space is limited, preference will be given to graduate students and postdocs.

The tutorial will be held at NCAR's Mesa Lab in Boulder, CO. Participants should plan to be in Boulder during the entire tutorial and devote their full time to this tutorial. Participants will need to be able to secure their own funding for transportation (airfare & shuttles), lodging, and meals, but there will not be any additional registration fees.

For inquiries about the content and format of the tutorial, please contact Danica Lombardozzi (dll@ucar.edu). For further logistical information about the tutorial, contact Barbara Ballard (bballard@ucar.edu).

Application process is now closed.
