Training Workshop: The Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System
October 17 - 19, 2017 || Boulder, CO
Early Bird Registration Deadline: August 15th
Regular Registration Deadline: August 31st

This training workshop will provide graduate students and early career 
scientists with formal instruction on the structure and application of the 
WRF-Hydro system and will offer hands-on experience in setting up and running 
the system for several different research and prediction applications.

Prerequisites: Graduate students, post-docs, and professionals working in 
hydrology and/or the atmospheric sciences are invited to participate. Prior 
hydrologic and/or atmospheric modeling experience is advised. Unix/Linux 
command line operation required.

Specific topics to be covered during the workshop include:

  *   Conceptualization and structure of the WRF-Hydro system
  *   Description of physics components options within WRF-Hydro v5.0
  *   Model porting and compilation and overview of parallel computing with 
  *   Model input data preparation
  *   Model configuration and execution
  *   Visualization and post-processing of model output
  *   Case studies (participants learn how to use the system in both one-way 
uncoupled and two-way coupled modes with the community WRF atmospheric model)
  *   Setup and use of the open source Rwrfhydro hydrologic model evaluation 
  *   Open discussion on class participant interests and applications

Class participants will receive in-depth training via lectures and hands-on 
activities on the implementation and use of the WRF-Hydro system where all 
hands-on tutorial activities will be conducted in a formal computer laboratory 
located at NCAR.

The course will be held at NCAR<> in Boulder, CO. Included 
in the registration fee are course tuition, facilities costs, catered lunches 
and light refreshments, and shuttle transportation from the hotel to/from
