Formación técnica
29 Nov 2017
PATC course organized by Barcelona Supercomputing Center

The objective of this PATC course is to cover the basics of a high performance computing (HPC) environment oriented towards earth science applications, specifically chemical weather modelling and climate modelling. More precisely, the course will cover:

- 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/BSC-CTM 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 wide set of tools



- At least University degree in progress on Earth Sciences, Computer Sciences or related area

- Basic knowledge of UNIX

- Knowledge of C, FORTRAN, MPI or openMP is recommended

- Knowledge of Earth Sciences data formats is recommended (grib, netcdf, hdf,…)

- Knowledge of R and python
