3rd NCAS Climate Modelling Summer School

The 3rd NCAS Summer School on Climate Modelling will be held at Cambridge University from 11th – 23rd September 2011.  Registration for this course is now open - we advise that you visit the summer school webpage ( to read more information before you apply for a place.

Target audience:

This intensive 12-day course is aimed at advanced Ph.D students and/or post-doctoral researchers, working in the natural sciences wishing to become experts in climate modelling.

Course content & output:

Run by UK climate modelling experts, the course will include;

  • A background to the theory of climate models, the workings of the climate system, and current challenges in climate modelling
  • Practical training on how to design, run and evaluate climate models

A typical day will consist of lectures in the morning, practical sessions in the afternoons and an evening activity e.g. seminars from leading climate scientists. At the end of this course, participants should be able to understand:

  • The fundamental principles of the science contained in the models
  • How the different areas of science in modern climate models are interconnected
  • How models are implemented and operated on modern supercomputers
  • How to assess the quality of the model results and how to perform high-level analysis
  • How climate science is used for policy making.
