Now Accepting Applications for June 2018 Training Workshop: The Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System

NCAR is pleased to partner with CUAHSI to offer an extended (3.5day) training workshop on the Community WRF-Hydro Modeling System the week of June 5-8 2018. Applications are now being accepted and interested applicants can apply through the event Website until 5:00 p.m. ET on February 28, 2018. We recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis first-come, first-served. Below is a summary of the workshop. 

Course Description

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.

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 WRF-Hydro
  • Model input data preparation
  • Model configuration and execution
  • Visualization and post-processing of model output
  • Test cases and experimental runs
  • Setup and use of the open source Rwrfhydro hydrologic model evaluation package
  • Model calibration
  • 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 in Boulder, CO.
