Terrestrial Modelling and High-Performance Scientific Computing

(HPSC TerrSys Fall School 2019)
23td – 27th September 2019, Bonn, Germany 


The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys) offers a fall school from 23 – 27 September 2019 in Bonn, Germany. The course is aimed at Master and PhD students as well as PostDocs interested in Terrestrial Modelling and High-Performance Scientific Computing. The school is supported by Geoverbund ABC/J.

Learning Outcomes

Completion of the course will provide the participants with the generic capabilities of terrestrial modeling and data assimilation in supercomputing environments with a focus on TSMP(-PDAF) including parallel performance analysis and profiling utilizing freely available software tools, and handling of very large data sets in the analyses and visualization process.

Target Audience and Prerequisites

  • Master or PhD students, PostDocs with a deep interest in terrestrial modeling (hydrology, land surface, atmosphere)
  • Basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX and programming languages such as R, Python, C/C++, or FORTRAN as well as data formats such as NetCDF is an advantage
