The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys) offers a fall school from 23 - 27 September 2019 in Bonn, Germany. The course is aimed at Master and PhD students as well as PostDocs interested in Terrestrial Modelling and High-Performance Scientific Computing. The school is supported by Geoverbund ABC/J.

Course leader

The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys)

Target group

Master or PhD students, PostDocs with a deep interest in terrestrial modeling (hydrology, land surface, atmosphere)

Course aim

The objectives of this applied course is to provide the theoretical and technical context of terrestrial modeling in high-performance scientific computing (HPSC) environments utilizing stand-alone and coupled hydrologic, land surface and atmospheric models. Utilizing the Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform (TerrSysMP), the course will take a complete tour of terrestrial modeling and HPSC in connection with real-world observations and data assimilation including:

- setting up a terrestrial model and performing simulations in massively parallel supercomputer environments at the J├╝lich Supercomputing Centre,
-parallel performance analysis and profiling,
-parallel data assimilation using TerrSysMP-PDAF (Parallel Data Assimilation Framework), and
-post-processing and visualization in the age of big data.
