First steps in biosphere-atmosphere modelling
In this course you will not run any existing model or analyze data from a model but you will get basic and detailed knowledge on how to write an atmospheric model from scratch. During the course, everyone will program his or her own 1-dimensional atmospheric boundary layer model with equations of flow for the atmospheric boundary layer, chemical kinetics by systems of differential equations, emissions of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) from vegetation, deposition of gases and aerosols and numerical solutions for aerosol formation and growth. The model will be coded in Fortran 95.
Deadline for registration: 31 May 2021
