Upcoming CESM Tutorials

2019 CESM Tutorial

05 - 09 August 2019 | NCAR, Mesa Lab, Boulder, CO

The 2019 CESM Tutorial will take place 5 - 9 August 2019 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO.

The tutorial will consist of:

  • Lectures on simulating the climate system
  • Practical sessions on running CESM, modifying components, and analyzing data

The CESM Tutorial is targeted at the graduate student level. We can accept a maximum of 80 students with partial financial support (shared lodging and ground transportation) for some students. We are unable to fund airline tickets or per diem. Whether or not you apply for travel funds has no bearing on the selection process.

Past CESM Tutorials

CESM Tutorial at 2019 AMS Meeting

06 January 2019 | Phoenix Convention Center 225AB, Phoenix AZ

The AMS Short Course on Introducing the Community Earth System Model, version 2 (CESM2) via an interactive hands-on tutorial using The Cloud will be held on 06 Jan 2019, preceding the 99th AMS Annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. The goal of this short course is to introduce new users to CESM2. A broad overview of the capabilities within CESM2 will be provided along with hands-on experience at setting up and running simulations with CESM2.
