Dear All,


Earth Sciences Simulation Environments course is the first in series of HPC courses for computational Scientists in the BSC professional training program.  For the first time, it also includes an interactive session allowing participants to share their experiences in presentation. If you are interested to do so, please contact the conveners directly by emailing Enza Di Tomaso


As usual the teaching and the materials are in English and there are no fees for participation.


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.


For more information and to register for this course (before Nov. 23), please visit:


If you have specific inquiries, please visit BSC website or mail to us directly
