The workshop will teach participants the basics of regional climate modelling science using a combination of hands-on practical exercises and theoretical sessions. It is primarily aimed at users with little or no prior experience of running regional climate models and would be suitable for climate and environmental modellers, impacts and vulnerability assessment researchers and other researchers whose work requires the use of climate information.
The May 2017 workshop will feature the debut of a new way of running the PRECIS regional model: PRECIS in the Cloud. PRECIS will make use of the JASMIN cloud-computing / data-cluster facility at the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC). JASMIN provides a globally unique computational environment allowing scientists to bring their processing to the data. The workshop will give participants the necessary scientific and technical knowledge to run PRECIS on JASMIN and to make best use of PRECIS output.

The workshop costs £500 per person, which includes training materials, lunches and a course dinner. All participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
The deadline for applications is Friday 3rd March, although places are likely be filled before this date.
