LMDZ training course 2020 (15-17 dec.)

We are planning an online preparatory session on the 3rd december 2020 to install the LMDZ model on your personnal computers (we may be able to loan some out if you don't have one). This is so less time will be wasted during the actual training session trying to solve installation problems.

The actual training session would take place on the 15th to 17th of december. We are not sure yet whether this will take place on-site in Paris or online again. A decision will be taken late november/early december.

Please register before the 15th of november 2020, for the next LMDZ training course by filling in this poll.

Tutorials' practical details
Typically, tutorials will be run with Linux Operating System. We won't be much help if you bring a Mac or a Windows computer !

You will be able to run the tutorials using either:

  • Laptops (Linux/Ubuntu) provided for the training session which you'll be able to come and fetch before the preliminary installation session.
  • Your own laptop. If you plan to use your laptop, it should preferably be some Linux OS (a Linux Virtual Machine on some other operating system should also work), and should include a Fortran compiler (e.g. gfortran, version > 4.3) and some software to visualize NetCDF files (e.g. Ferret, Grads, ...).

To refresh your knowledge about Linux: Linux Boot camp
