*** Training course on Earth Sciences Simulation Environments ***
*** Barcelona (Spain) from November 27 to 29, 2018 ***
The Professional Training Program at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), in collaboration with the BSC Earth Sciences Department and the PRACEprogramme, organises the 7th edition of the training course entitled Earth Sciences Simulation Environments that will take place in Barcelona (Spain) fromNovember 27 to 29, 2018.
This training course covers the basics of high-performance computing (HPC) environment oriented towards earth science applications, specifically chemical weather modelling and climate modelling. More precisely, the course will address the following issues:
·         Introduction to earth science fundamentals and modelling.
·         Basic usage of an HPC environment: shell, compilers, libraries, file systems, queuing system.
·         Build and configure targeted earth science applications with the NMMB-MONARCH chemical transport model and with the EC-EARTH climate model.
·         Execute and monitor numerical experiments using a workflow manager.
·         Analyse and visualise model outputs with a full set of tools.
