WRF Tutorial & Workshop


13-17 November 2017


The University of New South Wales is hosting a WRF basic tutorial 13-16 (Monday to Thursday) November 2017, followed by a one day workshop on WRF related research on the 17th (Friday) of November 2017.

The WRF basic tutorial will be taught by the team from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in the USA. This WRF tutorial is aimed at new users. It consists of lectures on the components of the WRF modelling system and the ARW, as well as practical sessions providing hands-on experience with using the software.

The workshop to be held on the Friday is aimed at more experienced users. The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for WRF users to share new developments, present research highlights, and discuss issues of interest to both the users and developers. Participants of the workshop are encouraged to present their research either orally or as a poster.

The event is sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. Registration is free of charge, however please note that places are strictly limited so register early to ensure your place. The registration does not include accommodation, meals or travel and each participant must make their own arrangements. Some nearby accommodation options can be found here.
