Main content

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a state-of-the-art Earth System Model that can be used for prediction and understanding of a wide variety of aspects of the Earth system. CESM is freely available for use by the climate research community, making it an ideal tool for earth system research and education. 

The 2024 CESM Tutorial will take place August 5-9, 2024 and the application is closed. For questions related to the tutorial or your application, you can email Elizabeth Faircloth.

The CESM Tutorial will consist of lectures on simulating the climate system, practical sessions on running CESM, modifying components, and analyzing data, small group discussions with CESM scientists, and student networking.

The CESM tutorial is targeted to individuals with no or little experience with CESM. It provides attendees with a solid scientific understanding of the CESM components and the basic building blocks to start running the model. We welcome applications from students, postdocs, research scientists, and faculty members, especially from individuals whose research/career would benefit from using CESM. 

Format: The 2024 CESM Tutorial is an in-person event. Specific details regarding the content and format will be posted to the website as soon as they become available.

Cost: There is no cost to apply or to attend the tutorial. At this time we do not know if NCAR can provide travel support to attendees. Further details will be posted to the website as they become available.

Deadlines: The application deadline is February 4, 2024, at 11:59 PM Mountain Time. Accepted students will be informed by April 19, 2024. Please be aware that the tutorial acceptance process is competitive; historically, approximately 1 out of 2 applicants were accepted. Therefore, it is advisable to carefully compose and review your application before submission.

We are committed to welcoming all applicants, and fostering an inclusive environment free from discrimination.
