Dynamical Core Model Intercomparison Project Workshop 2016

June 6-17, 2016

The Dynamical Core Model Intercomparison Project (DCMIP) and associated two-week summer school in June 2016 highlights the newest modeling techniques for global climate and weather models. It will be held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) from June/6-17/2016. Special attention is paid to non-hydrostatic global models, physics-dynamics coupling, and variable-resolution modeling. The objectives of DCMIP and its summer school are (1) to establish an open-access database via the Earth System Grid that hosts DCMIP simulations for community use, (2) to host about 12-15 dynamical core modeling groups and conduct a hands-on student-run DCMIP model intercomparison project, (3) to establish new atmospheric model test cases of intermediate complexity incorporating simplified physics parameterizations (4) teach a group of about 50 multi-disciplinary students and postdocs how today’s and future atmospheric models are or need to be built, and (5) to invite keynote speakers that will give lectures on modern modeling techniques and innovative computational tools.

DCMIP-2016 is sponsored by NCAR's Computational Information Systems Laboratory (CISL), NOAA, NASA, the Department of Energy (DoE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
Morning Summer School
Morning lectures from experts in the field on select topics associated with atmospheric model theory, design and development.  Topics include:

• Earth System Modeling and the Role of the Atmospheric Component Model
• Numerical Methods in Dynamical Cores
• High-Resolution Atmospheric Modeling
• Tracers in Atmospheric Models
• Physical Parameterizations
• Dynamics-Physics Coupling
• Evaluating Global Atmospheric Models
• Emerging Computational Aspects
• Informing the Science
Afternoon Workshop
Hands-on afternoon sessions run by model leads where students will execute and explore the newest generation atmospheric models. Students will receive hands-on experience with these dynamical cores in small groups to simulate a baroclinic instability, tropical cyclone and supercell storm.

Participating dynamical cores include FV3, HOMME, MPAS-A, DYNAMICO, IFS-FV, CSU, NICAM, NEPTUNE, ICON, GEM, OLAM, and TEMPEST.
