09 - 13 August 2021 | NCAR, Mesa Lab, Boulder, CO

The 2021 CESM Tutorial will take place 09 - 13 August 2021. This year the tutorial will remain entirely virtual via Zoom due to continued uncertainty about travel related to the global pandemic. During the tutorial week, activities will occur during a 9 am to 3 pm MDT window, which includes breaks in between live sessions. A total of 50 students will be selected and all applicants will be notified by mid May, 2021. The deadline for applying is Monday, 1 March, 2021 at 11:59 PM Mountain Time.

Whatever your intersection of identities, you are welcome at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). We are committed to inclusivity and promoting an equitable environment that values and respects the uniqueness of all members of our organization.

The Tutorial includes:
  • A mix of live and pre-recorded lectures on simulating the climate system. Students are expected to watch the pre-recorded lectures before the corresponding live Q&A session;
  • Pre-recorded practical sessions on how to run CESM, modify components, and analyze the output. During the tutorial week there will be daily live office hours dedicated to help students with any potential problems encountered during the practical sessions. Again, students are expected to complete the practical sessions before the corresponding office hours;
