Modelling the climate system

Date: June 24-28, 2019.
Location: University of Melbourne
Applications closed

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes will host a graduate level winter school on June 24-28, 2018, at the University of Melbourne, Victoria.

The theme of the Winter School is Modelling the climate system

The winter school will introduce the philosophy of climate models, and cover model hierarchy, evaluation, data assimilation, and experimental design. Fundamentals of atmosphere, land, and ocean modelling will be introduced, including discussions on the state of the science, parameterisation, different types of models, resolution, coupling, etc. We will also provide an overview of the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) and the CMIP experiments.

This is a high-level education program for honours and graduate students interested in climate science. It will be of relevance to those working in atmospheric sciences, oceanography and land processes.

The winter school will consist of a series of lectures and lab sessions delivered by Centre of Excellence researchers from our five universities and partner organisations.

Some funding is available to support attendance. Priority will be given to honours and graduate students working on climate science problems.

​The number of places is strictly limited. Applications closed.
