The NCAR Command Language (NCL) is a scripting language designed specifically for scientific data processing and visualization. NCL workshops are free and tailored to students and researchers in the Earth sciences who are interested in learning how to use the language to analyze their data. Workshops last 3.5 days, with a mix of lectures and hands-on computer labs. The emphasis during the labs is on helping students use NCL to analyze their own datasets of interest, rather than using canned datasets. Classes are limited to 16 students. The summer workshop fills up early, so be sure to register soon.
There are two workshops scheduled for 2014:
