Lecture Notes

We also provide formal (text book like) lecture notes from the Numerical Weather Prediction training modules.

  • Data Assimilation
  • Numerical methods
  • Parameterization
  • Predictability

(*) Mathematics and meteorological theory that we expect course participants to be familiar with is covered in our Introduction to Numerical Weather Prediction lecture notes.

ESCAPE Training resources

ESCAPE aims to develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) and future climate models. ESCAPE addresses the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda 'Energy and resiliency' priority topic, developing a holistic understanding of energy-efficiency for extreme-scale applications using heterogeneous architectures, accelerators and special compute units, to address the biggest challenge for state-of-the-art NWP which arises from the need to simulate complex physical phenomena within tight production schedules.
