This course focuses on current state of the art, recent advances and future challenges in high-resolution numerical modelling of the atmosphere and ocean. Latest advances in efficiency and numerical methods will be discussed. 

An example timetable from the online course from 2021 shows what is usually covered.

Topics
  • Governing equations
  • Hydrostatic/Non-hydrostatic dynamics
  • Horizontal and vertical discretisations
  • Time-integration, advection and high order space discretisation schemes
  • Elliptic solvers
  • Numerical techniques for solving the prognostic equations in the ECMWF model (IFS)
  • Numerical techniques for massively parallel computer architectures expected in the future
Requirements

Participants should have a good mathematical background, and are expected to be familiar with the contents of standard meteorological and mathematical textbooks. A familiarity with python is useful for some of the practical sessions.

Introductory material not covered by the course can be found in our lecture note series.

Some practical experience in numerical weather prediction is an advantage.

Course fee

£900

A course fee is payable by participants who do not reside in an ECMWF Member or Co-operating State.
