Sonderforschungsbereich 990: Ökologische und sozioökonomische Funktionen tropischer Tieflandregenwald-Transformationssysteme (Sumatra, Indonesien)

Crash course with focus on land surface modeling using the Community Land Model (CLM).

The scientific projects A03 & A07 (Prof. Alexander Knohl, Dr. Ashehad Ali, Dr. Fernando Moyano) will conduct a crash course on ecosystem modeling from 27 to 30 November 2017 at the Department of Bioclimatology.

Course content:
The course will start with a look at the basics of modeling dynamical systems and continue with a close look at approaches for modeling processes that control fluxes of carbon, water and energy at the boundary between the land surface and the atmosphere. The participants will gain experience with creating simple model code in R as well as with exploring the structure and function of the Community Land Model and using it to conduct site-level simulations.
The course will be given in English.

Course date and time: 27th, 28th and 30th of November, from 9-12:45hs and 14-17hs.
Course location: Library room 5.106, Büsgenweg 2, 5th floor, department of Bioclimatology
To register, please send an e-mail to Fernando Moyano at fmoyano@uni-goettingen.de. We will only consider the first five participants on first-come first-serve basis. The participants will be required to bring their laptop.
